The information collected as part of the approval process ensures that new modules
align with University standards and policies, that modules can be advertised
accurately, and that modules are available via online systems ready for students
to enrol on them.
The department putting forward the proposal is responsible for ensuring that
the submission addresses all relevant issues.
