Academic Quality and Enhancement is the first point of contact in relation to any new partnership and will advise on the policy, processes and requirements in relation to both new and existing arrangements.
A Partnership Proposal is made via Academic Quality and Enhancement to the Academic Partnerships Sub-Committee and comprises the following documentation:
- Partnership Proposal form including Statement of Strategic Benefit
- Initial Due Diligence
- Risk Assessment
- Initial Financial Plan
Partnership approval: next steps
If a partnership proposal is approved by the Academic Partnerships Sub-Committee, then it may then proceed to programme development phase and to University academic approval through a Programme Approval event.
During this phase the Academic Quality and Partnerships Office will complete full due diligence, arrange for the completion of financial negotiations, and prepare the contract.
