Decree (5): Advanced Diplomas in Continuing
Education

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Committee on
Continuing Education and with the concurrence of the General Board,
provides for a change in the name of certain existing Diplomas to
Advanced Diplomas.

Legislation was put forward in July 1999 to introduce a new
qualification of Advanced Diploma, to carry 120 CATS points at level
3 (i.e. equivalent to one year's full-time study at third-year
undergraduate level). Such awards were introduced in two subjects:
Archaeology, and British Studies (Language and "8Dec">Society) (see Decree (8) of 15 July 1999,
Gazette, Vol. 129, p. 1534). The Board and Council have
subsequently approved a revised qualifications and credit framework
put forward by the Committee on Continuing Education, under which
existing diplomas at level 3 which carry 60 CATS points (i.e. are
equivalent to half of one year's full-time study at third-year
undergraduate level) are renamed as Advanced Diplomas.

The legislation now put forward, which supersedes that put forward in
July 1999, provides for all Advanced Diplomas to be covered by a
single decree, while distinguishing between the three types of
Advanced Diploma which now exist, viz. (a) two-year
part-time, carrying 120 CATS points: Archaeological Practice;
(b) one-year full-time, carrying 120 CATS points: British
Studies (Language and Society); and (c) one-year part-time,
carrying 60 CATS points: Biblical and Theological Studies, Computing,
and Local History.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and
Boards' below.

Text of Decree (5)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1999, p.
984, delete ll. 12–33 and substitute:

`UNDERGRADUATE ADVANCED DIPLOMAS

(CONTINUING EDUCATION)

Ch. X, Sect. XVI]

(i) DECREE

1. The Committee on Continuing Education shall have power to
grant Advanced Diplomas (two-year part-time), Advanced Diplomas
(one-year full-time), and Advanced Diplomas (one-year part-time) to
candidates who have satisfied the conditions prescribed in this
section and any further conditions which the committee may prescribe
by regulation.

2. The examination for each Advanced Diploma (Continuing
Education) shall be under the supervision of the Committee on
Continuing Education, which shall have power, subject to the approval
of the General Board, to make regulations governing the examination.

3. Candidates, whether members of the University or not, may be
admitted as students for an Advanced Diploma (Continuing Education)
under such conditions as the committee shall prescribe, provided that
before admission to a course of study approved by the committee,
candidates shall have satisfied the committee that they have
appropriate educational experience acceptable to the committee and
are well-equipped to enter the proposed course of study.

4. Any person who has been accepted as a candidate for an
Advanced Diploma (Continuing Education), and who has satisfactorily

RESEARCH TRANSPARENCY REVIEW

Following the Government's 1998 Comprehensive Spending Review the Higher
Education Sector is required to report on its costs using a sector-wide
consistent methodology. To meet this requirement the University has to report
on 1999–2000 expenditure, and has therefore set up a project steering
group under the chairmanship of Professor Susan Iversen, Pro-Vice-
Chancellor, to monitor progress towards this goal.

As well as fulfilling the national imperative, there will be significant benefits
to the University itself in carrying out this exercise. In order to clarify what
the project is about and what its requirements mean for the University, a
half-day seminar has been arranged for 10 a.m. on Thursday, 30 March, in the
Lecture Room of the Natural History Museum. Jim Port, from the consultants
appointed to manage the project nationally, has been invited to attend to put
the exercise into a sector-wide context. Staff who wish to attend should
contact Alysoun Bateman, Room 415, University Offices.

Any immediate questions to be answered before the seminar should be
addressed to Professor Iversen or Kevin Davis, Head of Management
Accounting.
