Background to Programme & Unit Catalogues
Programme and Unit catalogues have been prepared for use across the University since 1997/8. In earlier years, this was done only for undergraduate programmes, but with effect from 2001/2 details of many postgraduate programmes have been covered.
In 1997/8 most of the components (units) within programmes of study were offered in a modular framework for the first time. In addition, the academic year was divided into two semesters, in order to provide an appropriate period over which to offer each unit.
