The University is mindful of the expectations articulated in the UK Quality Code for Higher Education (2018): that effective arrangements must be in place to ensure that the standards of its awards are credible and secure, and the academic experience is of high-quality, irrespective of where or how courses are delivered and who delivers them. This section of the Quality & Standards Handbook covers the procedures for:
- approval of new partnerships, through LPAG
- review and renewal of existing partnerships, through LPAG
- improvement action planning, where there have been breaches of quality expectations.
The processes for the approval and revalidation of collaborative delivery arrangements are set out in the new programme approval and modification and revalidation chapters of the Quality & Standards Handbook.
