Stage 3 - University Approval

If the collaboration involves the development of a new programme, the final Validation Panel report, when confirmed by the Chair, together with the programme specification will be forwarded to the Partnerships Team in Academic Affairs to secure formal approval of the programme regulations.  

The final Validation Panel report, together with the Programme Team’s response and the Business Plan/Case approved by the Director of Finance, will be submitted to ECQS, who will make the final decision on whether or not to proceed with the collaboration.  This decision will be reported to Academic Council. Where the validation process is linked to a strategic agreement, the arrangement will be considered by Academic Council for recommendation to Senate for formal approval.
