When final approval has been given by ECQS (or, if appropriate, Senate), the Partnerships Team in Academic Affairs will arrange for the signature of the Memorandum of Agreement. The authorised signatory is the Vice-Chancellor or an Institutional Pro-Vice-Chancellor. Details of the new collaborative arrangement will be circulated to relevant Faculty staff and Head(s) of School, the University Coordinator, the Admissions and Access Service, Information Services, Finance, Student Services and Systems and, if appropriate, the International Office and the International Student Support Office. The MOA is recorded on the Collaborative Provision Register and Recognised Teachers approved by ECQS and processed by Academic Affairs.
University Coordinators will normally be responsible for taking forward implementation and should liaise with their School/Faculty, particularly in relation to the application of any Partnership Management Plans which may be required by Faculty.
