Chapter 1 - Introduction

The University of Exeter Credit and Qualifications Framework is a University policy that provides a structure for all modules and programmes leading to taught awards and Professional Doctorates of the University of Exeter. Doctoral programmes that do not operate on a credit structure are also included for information. The CQF is owned by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education and Student Experience).

The CQF is effective from 2014/5. The regulations covering progression, award and other relevant factors are detailed in the University’s Calendar and the Handbook for Assessment, Progression and Awarding: Taught Programmes.
