Any late additions or amendments to the 2014 unit offering data can still be submitted via the request files in SharePoint, however, note the approval conditions below. Please use the ‘Unit Changes after 15 October’ tab for this purpose and send an email to Systems, advising of any change made to the unit data in SharePoint.
