Curriculum Advising and Programme Planning


What is CAPP?

CAPP (Curriculum Advising and Progamme Planning) is part of Banner and holds College’s definitive record of curriculum data across its academic departments.  It details degree programme structures including mandatory and optional 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 courses for their programme of study
  • Informing the Mark Management System
  • Informs the information given to prospective students about their degree programme (essentially the mandatory courses) as part of our legal obligation under CMA (Competition and Market Authority) rules
