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 course of study.
This statement contains guidance for:
- new taught courses of study leading to an award of the University of Bath
- new research degrees with a taught element (for example professional doctorates, integrated PhDs)
- new exit awards and variants to an existing academic course (for example, the addition to an existing course of a new placement or study year abroad).
For preparing a course specification for a new course, see also the information and template available in QA44 Course Handbooks and Course Specifications.
