Design a new course


Introduction

This page will provide links and guidance on the creation of a new face to face course. We will provide documents to help your design the learning outcomes and to help you make the course inclusive. There is also links to other areas of the university including Quality Assurances Service to guide you through the formal process of getting a new course approved. 

Quality Assurance

Course Development Principles

The principles aim to enhance students’ satisfaction, achievement and employability and engagement in their studies. Course teams are responsible for adopting the academic principles and applying them to all aspects of their course design and delivery.

There is more information and links to the downloadable guide on this dedicated page.

Level Learning Outcomes

We build our courses around levels of study, we assess our students at each level, we name our awards according to level of study completed. Where do such levels come from? How can we design modules and courses, and assess students with confidence that our notions of levelness are comparable across modules, across courses, and across awards? We have a number of resources that can support you through this process. Levelness and progression across the levels of an award is built through the design of appropriate learning outcomes. Learning outcomes are the drivers of assessment and of the learning activities which support students towards those assessments. We have created a guidance document available to download to support you through this process.

Embedding Graduate Attributes

The graduate attributes relate to digital literacy, being enterprising and having a global outlook. These are the three attributes which are embedded in the learning outcomes, content and assessment of every undergraduate course. They define the distinctiveness of our graduates. More information about each attribute and how you can embed them can be found on the link below.
