Curriculum design: Thematic Peer Group Report

Learning & Teaching Paper #8

Report editors: Oliver Vettori, Anna Gover

At the centre of a student’s university experience stands the programme that they follow. Therefore, creating curricula that are fit-for-purpose is at the heart of an institution’s teaching mission.


These curricula need to be relevant for students during their time at university, as well as serve as suitable preparation for their future professional and civic lives. This paper presents the work and conclusions of the EUA Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Group on “Curriculum design”, which identified nine components that contribute to the creation of an “ideal curriculum” covering all stages of the curriculum design.
