Subject to Validation

Course improvements which are subject to validation

When we make changes to improve a course, we must take the changes through a validation process. This is largely an internal activity and you can still apply for a course, as the course is already running.

Once the changes are validated, the subject to validation statement is removed and the full programme specification is added to the course web page. The programme specification will include details of the assessment hours, scheduled learning and teaching activities.

 
New courses which are subject to validation

When new courses are shown as subject to validation, these programmes are in development and the details are in the process of being finalised by the University.

You can apply to study a new course while it is subject to validation. The majority of new courses get approved, however this is not guaranteed. If the course does not go ahead, we will support you to find a suitable alternative course, either at Buckinghamshire New University or with another provider.

Once the course is validated, the subject to validation statement is removed and the full programme specification is added to the course web page. The programme specification will include details of the assessment hours, scheduled learning and teaching activities

Students who need a Tier 4 Visa to study in the UK can not be issued with CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) for new courses that are subject to validation.
