Programme Approval and Management
Programme approval is the process by which we ensure that any named award of Cardiff University is of an appropriate standard and will provide a valuable and stimulating learning experience for the student.
The standards and expectations set by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education are our guide to what we are required to do to ensure these standards.
On this page you will find links to resources that will support you in managing existing programmes or in creating new programmes.
