Training Sessions

The Curriculum team provides training to staff on the use of Saturn to create and amend curriculum information and on the Summer Audit processes. We can also offer sessions on the new programme approval processes with support from colleagues in relevant professional service areas. Our training events are managed through the University's Central Short Courses service and dates will be set as part of our planning procedures at the beginning of each session. You can register for these events by following the links below:

Training can also be offered on a more individual basis and be tailored to support your particular needs. If those events listed above do not suit, either because of dates or scope, please get in touch with the Curriculum team by emailing to see how we can help.


Schedule of Processes

We publish annually our deadlines for curriculum processes. These deadlines are usually determined by a need to have up to date information for the timetabling team to work with in advance of the academic year and/or to prevent changes being made to students when an academic session has already started.

Saturn Access

Programme & Module specifications and programme structure information can only be edited by those who have a SaturnWeb login and password. Some additional permissions are required to edit programme specifications  on Saturn.  

Access to SaturnWeb can be requested here and will give you the ability to edit module specifications for the next academic session. Please note that any edits made should be agreed within the School prior to them being added to Saturn and that each School is likely to have a policy on who should do the editing. 
SaturnWeb additional permissions allowing the user to edit the future year programme specification are restricted and limited to administrators and academics who have a significant role in curriculum.

If you think you should be granted access please ask the Head of School/School Manager/Director of Teaching or nominee to email with the request.

If you need to make a change to current year programmes and modules please contact us.
