About programme specifications

A programme specification is a description of a course that leads to a University award. It describes:

  • the aims and outcomes of the course
  • how the course is taught
  • the structure of the course
  • how the student is assessed (e.g. exams, dissertations, portfolios or projects)
  • the standard that the student needs to achieve in order be awarded the qualification.

Programme specifications are kept as simple as possible with a standardised format as they have a wide intended readership. For more detailed course information please see the University and College prospectuses and individual faculty and department websites.  More information about programme specifications at the University can be obtained from Educational and Student Policy.

Archive of programme specifications

An archive of programme specifications for University awards, including those which have been discontinued, and other courses such as Diplomas and Certificates, is provided below.  Note that some courses leading to a research degree do not produce individual specifications; see our pages on Research degrees for more information.
