7.1 Partner organisations may suggest modifications to collaborative programmes, but they may only be approved and implemented on completion of the appropriate approval process as set out in the Quality & Standards Handbook chapter 2: section 4.
7.2 Where programmes leading to the same award are being delivered by more than one partner, through a franchise arrangement or via the ACP, and/or also by the University, modifications should be agreed by all parties, in order to ensure continued comparability of the standards of the award and quality of the student experience across all delivery locations. However, changing delivery at all sites may not be appropriate for all types of modification, some of which may be to respond to local needs, therefore advice on such proposals should be sought from the link QAO.
7.3 In the case of validation, credit rating and articulation arrangements, the partner organisation must notify the University when modifications are to be made to their programme, and the Faculty AESC/QLIC must ensure that the partner programme continues to meet the University’s requirements for the credit being awarded.
7.4 Modifications to ACP and flying faculty provision are dealt with in the same way as for home provision. Modifications to jointly-provided programmes leading to dual or joint awards must be agreed by all partners involved.
7.7 In all cases of modification to approved arrangements, the Operations Manual must be updated and approved, and lodged with the definitive documents governing the collaborative arrangements, held by the Academic Policy & Quality Office.
