Curriculum Advising and Programme Planning


What is CAPP?

CAPP (Curriculum Advising and Programme Planning) is part of Banner and holds College’s definitive record of curriculum data across its academic departments.  It details degree course (programme) structures including mandatory and optional modules (courses) and any associated rules for taught degrees offered by College.

Why is CAPP so important?

CAPP forms the basis of various important processes across College, including:

  • Informing Timetabling
  • Informing the mandatory registration scripts which ensure students are correctly registered on the correct mandatory modules for their programme of study
  • Informing the Mark Management System
  • Informs the information given to prospective students about their degree course (essentially the mandatory modules) as part of our legal obligation under CMA (Competition and Market Authority) rules
