Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order repeals and replaces the Education (Listed Bodies) Order (Northern Ireland) 2000.

Article 3(1) of the Education (Unrecognised Degrees) (Northern Ireland) Order 1988 (“the 1988 Order”) makes it an offence to grant, offer to grant or issue any invitation relating to certain degrees and awards. This does not apply to anything done in relation to a recognised award. Such an award includes any award granted or to be granted –

(a)by a university, college or other body which is authorised by Royal Charter or Act of Parliament to grant degrees; or

(b)by any body so authorised to act on its behalf in the granting of degrees

Such bodies are recognised bodies and this Order contains the list of the names of each body which is not a recognised body within Article 3(2)(a) or (b) of the 1988 Order but which either –

(a)provides any course which is in preparation for a degree to be granted by a recognised body and is approved by or on behalf of the recognised body; or

(b)is a constituent college, school or hall or other institution of a university which is a recognised body.
