Approval Procedures

Proposals for articulation should, in the first instance, be considered by the appropriate School and the Admissions and Access Service.  If the articulation proposal is to proceed it should be submitted to the Collaborative Provision Group (CPG) for formal consideration and approval.  The Admissions and Access Service will prepare a brief paper on the proposal, indicating whether or not the proposed arrangements are consistent with other articulation arrangements across the University.  The paper will also refer to programme compatibility and entrance requirements as well as information on how the School will help to support students articulating onto programmes at the University.  Where the articulation arrangement will involve a non-standard fee or commission payment, this must be approved and agreed by the Finance Office.

If the proposal is approved by the CPG, the Secretary of the Collaborative Provision Group will prepare a formal articulation agreement following consultation, as appropriate with the Admissions and Access Service, Finance Office, and the relevant subject area, and arrange for signature by the Chair of the CPG.  Details of the articulation agreement will be circulated to the Admissions and Access Service, Finance Office, Student Records Office and, if appropriate, International Student Support Office.  The articulation agreement will be recorded on the Collaborative Provision Register.
