Become an academic partner

Working in partnership with other institutions is fundamental to the way in which the University promotes participation in higher and further education and contributes to regional economic growth.

The scope of our partnership activity is diverse and ranges from working with partners to increase access to further and higher education, through to collaborative ventures whereby the University enters into a formal partnership arrangement with an institution to meet the educational needs of its local area.

The University welcomes the opportunity to discuss joint ventures of mutual interest which will provide high quality learning opportunities on a national and global level.

All of our partnership arrangements are operated in line with the quality standards and processes of the University and are regulated by the UK Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).
