QA3 Approval of New Programmes of Study

This Quality Assurance (QA) Code of Practice statement sets out the principles and process for approval of a new taught programme of study.

This statement contains guidance for:

  • all taught programmes of study leading to an award of the University of Bath
  • research degrees with a taught element (for example professional doctorates, integrated PhDs)
  • new exit awards and variants to an existing academic programme (for example, the addition to an existing programme of a new placement or study year abroad).
