Deadlines and Key Dates

Key Dates for Programme Management

New Programmes for September 2023 entry

Schools are asked to note a two year lead-in as shown in the New Programme Approval Flowchart Under CMA Guidance, new programmes should not be listed in University websites or publications, or advertised in any media until final approval has been granted by the University’s Education Committee (Quality and Standards).

Schools are strongly advised to make provisional arrangements for a Programme Evaluation Meeting (PEM) in Semester 1, given that the availability of external advisors at short notice may be problematic. The PEM may only proceed if Approval to Proceed has been granted by the Faculty.
