The UCL programme specifications are currently being updated for 2017-18 and will be available on this page from 1 September 2017. Programme Specifications for 2016-17 are available in sub-pages accessible under each faculty below but please note that there may be changes to programmes between 2016-17 and 2017-18 which are not documented here. There are also archived programme specifications shown for the previous four sessions. The rationale for the current form of the programme specifications is given below.

Please note that it is intended to create a new unified programme record in future at UCL and that 2017-18 is likely to be the last year that the programme specifications will appear in the current format.

At UCL, programme specifications form part of - and have been explicitly designed to facilitate - our internal programme approval, quality monitoring and review processes. They are not intended to be, or designed to act as, primarily a source of information for students, potential students, employers or other external stakeholders - relevant information for these various stakeholders is provided in more appropriate and accessible formats, e.g., the UCL prospectuses, departmental handbooks, programme guides, course outlines, many of which are available online. However, as programme specifications are publically available, and in order to ensure that students and external stakeholders can easily access the range of information available each programme specification should contain a web address or other link to where more detailed information about the programme can be obtained.

More general information on Programme Specifications can be found at here.

For guidance on completing a programme specification, an electronic template and two worked examples, please see our Programme Specification Guide.
