Academic Partnerships

Partnerships with other academic institutions enable us to:

  • extend the delivery of our programmes in the UK and globally
  • enhance the international culture of our University
  • provide opportunities for a broader range of students to access an Oxford Brookes degree in many different locations.

To find detailed information about each programme, please contact the relevant partner institution. 

UK partnerships

In the UK you can study for an Oxford Brookes business degree at Activate Learning (Oxford Campus); Abingdon & Witney College; Solihull College & University Centre, and Wiltshire College & University Centre.

All of our programmes with UK partners are offered as a foundation degree (equivalent to the first two years of a traditional undergraduate degree) and a ‘top-up’ (the final year) and are particularly suited to those in work. Find out more.
