- Work program priorities for 2011, and measures being taken
There continues to be strong and widespread support within and beyond the University for the principles that underpin the new course structures. Although implementing such a large set of changes is a complex process, the work has gone according to plan, a collaborative spirit predominates, and we are meeting our targets. Nevertheless the Implementation Committee recognises that with less than a year to go before the new courses begin there can be no room for complacency.
Project timelines and milestones
The Timelines and Milestones document, available on the New courses 2012 web site, is continually checked and occasionally modified as the project proceeds. It is based on frequent consultation with relevant individuals and groups, and used as a frame of reference by the Implementation Committee and its working parties. It illustrates steady and timely progress.
