Termination of a Partnership
Terminations will normally be proposed by the Partnership Board as a result of annual or periodic review of the partnership. All terminations are handled by the Academic Quality and Partnerships Office in consultation with the School, and require the approval of the School Board, Academic Partnerships Sub-Committee, Learning and Teaching Committee and Senate.
While different arrangements and circumstances may result in different notice periods, all such arrangements will involve the development of an exit strategy to safeguard the student experience and make provision for enrolled students to complete their programme of study.
Whatever the reason for termination, most contracts state that no further students can be enrolled on the programme once notice has been given.
If the University receives notice of termination from a partner, the School(s) will be required to produce an exit strategy and report this to Academic Partnerships Sub-Committee and Learning and Teaching Committee.
