To assure academic quality, programme revision protocols are in place to govern changes at institutional, programme and course levels. Institutional-level revisions which involve major programme revisions (e.g., introduction/termination of programmes, changes to title/award/unit of a degree, study mode and programme duration, Medium of Instruction (MOI) and new Concentration / Minor of study, etc.) shall require the approval of the Senate via the Quality Assurance Committee (QAC). Programme-level revisions (e.g., aims, objectives, Programme Intended Learning Outcomes (PILOs), assessment weighting, etc.) shall require the approval of the Faculty/School Board. Course-level revisions (e.g., reading list/reference/textbooks of courses, etc.) shall require the approval of the Department/Programme Management Committee. For Sub-degree (SD) programmes, the revisions should route through the relevant Quality Assurance Sub-Committees on Sub-degree Programmes (QASCs) responsible for quality monitoring of programmes at Qualifications Framework (QF) Level 4 and QF Level 1-3 respectively.
All revisions shall be endorsed and approved by the respective authorities in accordance with the following programme revision protocols:
Programme Revision Protocol for HKBU Degrees (Undergradute and Taught Postgraduate levels)
Programme Revision Protocol for BNU-HKBU UIC Degrees (Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate levels)
Programme Revision Protocol for HKBU Sub-degrees (QF Level 4)
Programme Revision Protocol for HKBU Sub-degrees (QF Levels 1-3)
