The University operates a two-part module approval process:

  1. The MOFS database is a web-based system. It supports the University's module approval process and improves the accessibility and consistency of definitive module data.
  2. Module Outline Forms (MOFs) are created and maintained in the database. The approval process is integrated within the system to provide a secure environment

Module Outline Forms provide an accurate record of module content, delivery and assessment. As such, they feed into a number of University databases and national platforms, including:

  • Undergraduate and postgraduate taught prospectuses
  • the Module Catalogue
  • NESS
  • The Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)
  • Key Information Sets (KIS).

The content entered into the MOFs is read and used by numerous parties:

  • current and prospective students
  • Faculty Learning and Teaching Teams
  • School office staff, the timetabling team
  • potential employers of current students
  • external partner institutions.

It is important that the content in MOFs is clear and easily understood, correct (both factually and grammatically) and up-to-date.
