Academic Partnerships...

Academic Partnerships are formal arrangements in which two providers or organisations work together to provide teaching, supervision, support and/or facilities for students as a formal element of a degree or programme or other qualification.

We have a range of Academic Partnerships with many public and private institutions in the UK and globally. You can find a full list of our partners and the programmes they offer below.

We are proud of the relationships we have with our academic partners. Below, you can see there are lots of ways we might join forces with someone else to enhance your learning.

Accreditation
This is when a programme leads to the award of university credit. It will be designed and delivered by our partner but quality assured by us here at the University.

Articulation
This is an agreement between us and our partner that we recognise the award they make, and that it counts towards the qualification you are hoping to achieve.

Co-delivery
This is when a programme leads to you gaining a university credit or award, and is delivered by our partner but quality assured by us.

Distance learning with partner support
This is a distance learning programme that leads to you gaining a credit or recognised award. It is designed and quality assured by us, and you have some local tutorial support from our partner.

Franchise
This is when our partner delivers a programme leading to you gaining a credit or award. The programme is designed and quality assured by us.

Joint / dual degrees
Sometimes we join forces with other degree-awarding bodies to offer joint or dual programmes. How they work and how they’re structured can vary widely.

Off-site delivery
This is when you study towards a qualification from us, and part or all of your studies take place at the premises of a partner organisation.

Professional
These are degrees with internal professional training. They lead to a recognised award and are designed and delivered by us but include professional content provided by a partner, for instance flight training.

Validation
This is when a programme leads to you gaining a qualification from the University. It will be designed and delivered by our partner but quality assured by us.
