Curriculum development statement

The University will use all reasonable measures to deliver courses of study as they are outlined at the time of offer. However, as a research intensive institution, the University ensures that its teaching is based on and references the research and related interests of its staff, which may change from time to time.

We are also mindful of the best use of our resources to ensure the highest quality experience for our students. As a result, programmes and modules are regularly reviewed with the aim of enhancing students' learning experience.

Any changes are made with due consideration to minimising impact, safeguarding academic standards and assuring quality, and are described at:
