Validation and Partnerships
Validation and Partnerships form the University's collaborative provision: educational activity that leads to City, University of London award (or credit) and is delivered, supported and/or assessed through an arrangement with a partner organisation either in the UK or overseas.
City engages in a variety of different types of collaborative provision including:
- Validation - this activity is managed centrally through the leadership of the Dean of Validation.
- Partnerships - this is overseen by the Deputy President. Deans of Schools have day-to-day responsibility for any award- or credit-bearing partnership activity. This includes:
- Joint Programmes
- Franchised Programmes
- Articulated Provision
- Access/Feeder Programmes
- Off-site programme delivery
All collaborative provision will be underpinned by a Memorandum of Agreement.
Ultimate strategic responsibility for all collaborative provision lies with the City's Executive Committee including responsibility for signing-off any proposed new activity.
Student and Academic Services provides administrative management for validation and institutional-level partnerships. In addition, it provides support to Schools on new and on-going partnership activity.
