About Programme Specifications

A programme specification is a concise description of the intended aims and learning outcomes of a programme of study, detail of how these outcomes can be achieved and demonstrated, and further information including the mode and duration of study, programme-specific regulations and the structure of the programme.  They are written for the benefit of:

  • prospective and current students, to provide details additional to those on the Study at York St John page;

  • academic and administrative staff, to provide an outline of how the programme is structured (into a cohesive whole).

They can also be useful as a supplement to the transcript for former students.  Programme specifications are provided from no earlier than 2011-12 entry; previous programme specifications may be available on request, enquiries should be emails to student records.

Programme specifications are published annually and therefore represent the course structure for each specific academic year.

See also: York St John University's general regulations for awards.

Please note that programme specifications relate to the course content that is currently being studied at the University.  In exceptional circumstances the University reserves the right, without notice or liability, to withdraw or alter programmes or parts of programmes at any time, for example, changes to the list of modules that contribute to an award.
