*Subject to Validation and Accreditation. The University reviews its courses on a regular basis to ensure that they reflect the needs of students and employers. To do this we have a schedule for approving new programmes and updating existing ones. Some are awaiting their turn in the approval cycle and are shown as 'subject to validation'. As soon as the award is validated, details will be amended automatically. Other courses are accredited by professional bodies and have to go through a separate external approval process with the relevant body once they are validated. It is intended that these programmes will apply for accreditation with effect from May 2019. For those courses listed as subject to validation and accreditation, please contact the Admissions Office on 01978 293439 for further information. Once a programme that you have applied for is validated and accredited, details will be communicated to you. If you are not happy with the changes made and wish to withdraw your choice, the University will assist you in finding an alternative programme.
