Establishment, revision and discontinuation of study programmes
The constant development of courses and study programmes is an important part of quality management and should be carried out continuously.
When considerable changes to existing programmes, or completely new programmes, are planned, there are procedures for how this is to be accomplished, both at University and faculty level.
When a new study programme is to be established, programme validation is conducted by external experts, who assess whether conditions exist for starting the proposed study programme. Development of existing study programmes is continuous and leads to programmes being changed and revised over time. Sometimes it is necessary to discontinue a study programme, for example if a programme does not correspond to the students’ or society’s needs.
The faculty also has common procedures for the establishment of new courses and the approval of course syllabi.
