These are agreements negotiated with overseas universities to recruit undergraduate or postgraduate students to Queen’s programmes. There will normally be a financial incentive based on the number of students recruited.
Such agreements can comprise a range of initiatives or types of collaboration, which although specifically aimed at recruitment to existing programmes are also intended to promote and to provide a basis for the development of a broader, more enhanced educational and/or research link. Arrangements will typically include, inter alia, provision for:
(i) Direct entry to postgraduate taught study following successful completion of a three or four year undergraduate degree at the partner institution (3+1, 4+1)
(ii) Articulation to the second year of an undergraduate degree programme on successful completion of two years of relevant undergraduate study at the partner institution (2+2)
(iii) Final year undergraduate study (Study Abroad/Credit Earning Non Graduating) at Queen’s and linked progression to relevant postgraduate taught and MPhil study (3+1+1)
The authorised signatory for such agreements is the Vice-Chancellor or an Institutional Pro-Vice-Chancellor.
