New courses awaiting approval are shown as 'subject to validation' as some fuller detail of the course may not yet be available. As soon as the new award is validated, full details are provided through the detailed Programme Specification being made available through the course webpages. In the very unlikely event of a new course not being approved, applicants would be contacted and the University would work with them to identify alternative options within the University, or elsewhere.
Courses going through periodic review could change slightly but overall aims are unchanged and there would only be minor updates to content and/or structure. As such, the existing Programme Specification provides a reasonable reflection of the course and an updated version will be made available through the course webpages after each periodic review event. Occasionally courses go through a more substantial review process called revalidation, meaning that the course (aims and content) are likely to change significantly. In such cases the fuller detail of the revised course may not be available but as soon as the programme is revalidated, the new Programme Specification will be made available through the course webpages.
