Policy and guidance on the approval and review of non-credit bearing taught provision

Updated on 8 June 2020

This Policy and guidance applies to all non-credit bearing taught provision where there is certification from the University including Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

On this page

The University provides a variety of courses and training opportunities that are not credit-bearing (i.e. they have not been benchmarked against the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) and do not formally contribute to an award as described within The Framework for Qualifications of Higher Education Institutions in Scotland).  

The policy and guidance is in place to ensure that there are appropriate opportunities to formally reflect and report on the strategic importance, sustainability and quality of non-credit bearing taught courses. 

The policy and guidance does not apply to events, training programmes, workshops or seminars where certificates are not provided by the University.
