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.
