A Programme Specification is a concise description of the learning outcomes from a programme. The means by which these programmes are achieved (i.e. teaching and learning methods) and demonstrated (i.e. assessment) should be included. Any features that make the programme unique or distinctive should also be included. The Programme Specification should make clear how the different components of the course are related to each other and to the final qualification.
