Academic partnerships relating to students are an important element of the University’s strategic goals; they can provide enhanced experiences and enriched study for our students and can lead to staff research collaborations and strengthened funding opportunities.

These pages provide advice and guidance to all staff who are considering developing a student-related partnership (undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research); they will help identify the type of partnership and the Quality Assurance issues that need to be considered.

In addition, the Partnerships and Collaborative Provision web pages provide a toolkit of resources to assist staff in the proposal, development and review of student-related partnerships. These resources will grow over time and will change as regulations or legislation changes.

For partnerships that do not involve students (e.g. staff research collaborations), please contact Research & Innovation.
