The purpose of programme specifications
Programme specifications are intended to provide a standard format to present information about UCEM’s programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level. In particular, they set out the aims and intended learning outcomes for the programme of study concerned, the programme structure and methods of assessment.
The Programme Specification is an important document for prospective students and students as it details how your programme will operate. Any changes to the Programme Specification must be approved by the UCEM Boards of Study, and will usually apply at the beginning of the next academic year (from the 1st September of the year concerned). If a change is made you will be provided with information on what has changed, the reasons for the change and how it will affect you.
Academic and General Regulations for Students
UCEM’s Academic and General Regulations for Students represent the highest written authority influencing the design, development and management of UCEM awards and provide the necessary academic framework to enable UCEM to confer degrees, diplomas, certificates and other academic awards.
These Regulations represent a key means by which UCEM assures the standards of its awards and ensures that students receive equitable treatment throughout their studies.
All students should familiarise themselves with these Regulations as they will govern their dealings with UCEM at all times.
The Regulations should not be read in isolation; but read in conjunction with other relevant UCEM documents such as the programme specification.
