Our online resources and guidance provide information for prospective academic partners on the process for approving and reapproving institutions and the ongoing management of these academic partners.

Our relationships with our partner institutions are very important to us, and are a vital part of our commitment to widening participation and enhancing higher education opportunities in the region and beyond.

Students studying through partner institutions are a significant part of our overall student body, with around 2,000 students registered on our validated courses.

We work with our partners to maintain and enhance the standards and quality of UEA awards for validated provision, and these resources and guidance aim to provide advice on regulations, policy and procedures consistent with the requirements of the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education.

This section also contains:

  • Information on UEA’s partner institutions
  • Policy documents and information on procedures and regulations
  • Academic Partnerships staff contact details and responsibilities.

We hope that you find the site helpful and informative.
