In most cases where a new collaborative partnership is proposed, colleagues will have in mind a particular subject area or programme that is the spur for the partnership.
To manage collaborative provision effectively, York St John University must first scrutinise the proposed partner and approve them as a suitable institution to work with.
As the operational workload of validating both a partner institution and a programme is substantial, the procedures allow for both the programme and partner approval process to begin together. However, all work done to approve the programme must be done on the understanding that nothing is final until the partner is approved.
A partner institution must be approved before a programme can be approved and delivered.
The University has defined the indicative risks associated with the different types of partnership models it offers Partnership models and definitions (PDF, 0.2MB).
