Each year, the Programme Management Board oversees the review of every programme across the University at all levels, based on recruitment trend data and market intelligence, to ensure its programme portfolio remains current and viable. All Colleges are required to review their portfolios and respond to the Programme Management Board’s recommendations on maintaining, enhancing, suspending or withdrawing programmes from the overall portfolio.
Through this process, the Programme Management Board will also identify suspended programmes which require further action (either request an extended suspension to a maximum of two academic sessions, re-activation or withdrawal).
- Review your College/School Annual Portfolio Review data and recommendations
- Assess each programme based on viability and recruitment data and provide a response to the Programme Management Board
- Complete the suspension/withdrawal process for each programme to be removed (see Suspending and Withdrawing Programmes)
- Provide a specific response for managing suspended programmes
