The Curriculum Refresh Project was launched in February 2016 when Academic Board agreed that all courses should align to a curriculum framework which would ensure the ambitions of the Strategic Plan 2015-2020 would be realised. The aim of the Project was to ensure all courses would be refreshed for students beginning their studies in the academic year 2018/19. Course teams embarked on a process of mapping and review against this framework through the completion of a course road map.
The Curriculum Refresh Project formally came to an end in January 2018 and this page acts as a hub for relevant information.
