Approval process for Joint Awards

The University has an operational framework for joint awards and any proposal for a joint award (whether it be UK or overseas) will be considered and approved on a case-by-case basis.  The University will consider entering an agreement with another higher education institution to deliver and make specific joint awards only in exceptional circumstances.  Such institutions will be world-leading and the proposal must demonstrate clear benefits for the University and for the students on the programme(s) concerned.  The proposed programme of study or research programme must be one which will be enhanced by the collaboration of two different high-quality teaching and research environments and cultures.  The partnership must support one or more of the University’s strategic goals of research, higher learning and social responsibility with the potential to generate a significant financial return, taking into account full economic costing of the programme.  The partnership and resulting programme(s) must not risk the University’s potential to maximise international student fee income.
