Programme specifications are written by the programme team at the time of programme approval and updated when programme amendments are made. They are approved by the Taught Programmes Board prior to being posted on the website. They are referenced in the annual programme review, are part of the periodic review process and form a key part of external audits.
A programme specification is a summary of a programme’s aims and learning outcomes and the teaching, learning and assessment processes which allow these aims and learning outcomes to be achieved and demonstrated. The purpose of a programme specification at Queen Mary is to explain to students what they are expected to achieve and how they are expected to achieve this on their particular programme of study.
Approved programme specifications are available via the responsible Institute / School links. Both Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate programmes are listed under each Institute / School.
