What you need to know

Improving the design of our programmes is a key part of the University of Nottingham's strategy. The launch of the Curriculum Transformation Programme, which will run until 2025, underlines the importance of designing programmes of study which focus on the student journey, leading to the skills and values which we expect University of Nottingham graduates to be able to demonstrate. The programme brings together insights from current students, alumni, employers and the labour market to inform the re-design process. Both staff and students will work together on re-designing their programme, resulting in the negotiated co-creation of new programmes of study.

The aims of CTP include:

    • Developing robust processes for programme design, approval and review
    • Improving student learning and experience, including assessment literacy
    • Reducing assessment burden by promoting and facilitating a programme-level vision
    • Ensuring that all assesment tasks align with programme learning outcomes
    • Ensuring that programmes reflect the University's aspirations and values
    • Encouraging a culture of continuous improvement

The principles of the Curriculum Transformation Programme will be embedded into future curriculum design and will continue to support the University of Nottingham's strategy.
