Subject to Validation

Courses shown as Subject to Validation are new courses which are in development and the details are in the process of being finalised by the University. This will include details of the scheduled learning and teaching activities and the assessment hours, which will be updated once they have been confirmed.

The majority of new courses with this status are approved; however, this is not guaranteed and should the course not go ahead you will be informed by the University. We would normally notify you within three months of the start of the course that it has been approved. Advice and assistance will be provided to those who have been offered a place to find a suitable alternative course either at Buckinghamshire New University or with another provider.

Students who need a Tier 4 Visa to study in the UK will not be issued with CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) for courses that are Subject to Validation.

A CAS would also not be issued if a student was intending to take a Pre Sessional English programme prior to the intended degree course which was Subject to Validation.
