Welcome to Collaborative Provision

We support and advise on higher education arrangements with other institutions and organisations both in the UK and internationally. We work in conjunction with University staff, including colleagues in Legal Services, to assist in the development, management and review of collaborative provision arrangements.

'Collaborative provision denotes educational provision leading to an award, or to specific credit toward an award, of an awarding institution delivered and/or supported and/or assessed through an arrangement with a partner organisation.' (QAA)
