This section of the website contains documents for reference and for use by partner institutions, UEA and external academic staff involved in partnership activities.

It is essential that UEA works with its partners to maintain and enhance the standards and quality of UEA awards for validated courses.

The UEA Academic Partnerships Resources and Guidance draws together helpful advice and guidance to all UEA validated partners. It also covers the creation of a new partnership agreement. The Resources and Guidance should be regarded as key working documentation for colleagues and partners which details key regulations and provides practical information to ensure that policy and procedures meet the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) Quality Code requirements.

The Resources and Guidance is grouped into a number of sections, with some documents appearing under more than one section where appropriate. The mandatory sections and related documentation that all partner institutions are required to follow are:

  • Setting up and re-approving a partnership
  • Setting up and re-approving a course
  • Running a course
  • Reviewing a course
  • Changing and closing courses
  • Communicating and engaging with students
  • External examining
  • Joint board of study
  • Appeals and complaints
