This information is intended to assist faculty users and other stakeholders who are submitting annual (planned) changes for approval.
Details of approved postgraduate coursework courses and all associated units are available and processed via CAIDi.
Ensure that relevant faculty staff are aware of the change process via CAIDi. Keep communication channels open within faculty, across faculties and with relevant stakeholders including Central Administration.
Quality of the data content is the responsibility of the faculty. Faculties should undertake a quality check before submitting change proposals.
Every introduction or rescission of a unit needs to have a justification and faculty resolution. For each new unit (not yet approved for offering) introduced to a course structure, complete a new unit proposal form and submit alongside the change proposal to the course. Details of the units associated with postgraduate coursework courses will need to be approved by the Faculty Board.
Consider any impact a change to a unit is likely to have on the postgraduate course(s) in which the unit is taught and on students' academic progression.
If significant changes to a postgraduate coursework course or its units have occurred, the curriculum mapping document for that course should be updated. For more details see Curriculum mapping.
Courses can be rescinded via the change process, by changing the 'Availability of course' field on the form. Generally, courses are rescinded "subject to existing students being able to re-enrol and complete": this means the course will continue to be taught until all existing students students complete it, but the course does not take new enrolments. Pre-2012 coures can be rescinded once they have been taught out and no students remain to re-enrol by selecting "Rescinded immediately with no students eligilble to re-enrol" from the drop down menu.
It is strongly encouraged that faculties submit changes as and when they are ready. The recommended latest submission is by the end of May.
Note: faculty submission dates differ from central submission dates. When developing your change proposal, consider internal faculty approval processes and timings. For more details contact your Faculty Office.
