Program convenors

Our Program management procedure manual (coursework) provides detailed information on the processes program convenors follow. For similar information on research programs refer to the Rules governing Research Higher Degrees and its associated schedules: Masters Degree (Research) Awards and Programs Schedule; and Doctoral Degree (Research) Award and Program Schedule.

The Program Convenor Handbook (PDF 492KB) provides, in one single document, information on all the support services available to students as well as policies and procedures, quality assurance and program performance data.
