Dear Heriot-Watt University,

Please could you provide me with a list of all your undergraduate higher education courses which contain a single 80 SCQF credit module.

For each 80-credit module you deliver, please give the SCQF level and provide me with the module descriptor or curriculum document which lists how the notional learning hours are allocated to the module. Please could you give me the mode of delivery and also the learning outcomes, aims, objectives and modes of assessment for that module. If there are any essays/dissertations etc. please give the word count for those.

Yours faithfully,

Dear applicant

 

Thank you for your information request dated the 6^th June 2019 regarding
80 credit modules.  Your request has been handled under Scottish
legislation: the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA).  As
we discussed, I should like to apologise once again for the 1 day delay in
responding which has been caused by high volumes of casework.  We hope
this has not inconvenienced you.

 

We have approached our colleagues handling the request and we can confirm
that we have NO courses/modules credited to run with a 80 credit value.
The information is therefore exempt from release under Section 17 of
FOISA: Information not held.  Details of the courses/modules that we run
are available on our [1]website.
