Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)
In response to the 2015 Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) review of Universities compliance with consumer law, the University reviewed how changes to modules and programmes were approved. The University revised its procedures so that the material information contained in the curriculum (i.e. the majority of the information contained in the ‘’Programme Specification’’ document) is fixed before any offers are sent to students. This means that for a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes the core curriculum needs to be agreed a year in advance as it is information that forms part of our contract with the student. For more information about programme change, what constitutes material information, and how major and minor changes are defined, please see the Quality Team’s website.
