Academic Partnerships

What are Academic Partnerships?

Edge Hill University’s definition of Academic Partnerships is where any taught module or  programme for which the University holds ultimate responsibility but is delivered, in whole or in part, by another organisation.

Edge Hill University works with a select number of academic partners to deliver curriculum on a collaborative basis and prides itself on the high quality and robustness of these long-term partnerships. All partnerships are subject to a rigorous approval process and are regularly monitored to maintain quality and standards. These processes are detailed in Chapter 5 of the Quality Management Handbook.

A Register of Edge Hill University’s current academic partners is available and is published annually on this page.

The Academic Quality and Development Unit is responsible for the processes relating to partnership approval, review and closure, and works closely with colleagues in Academic Registry and in Faculties.

For general enquiries regarding academic partnerships at Edge Hill University you can contact AP@edgehill.ac.uk. If you are a member of an approved Edge Hill University academic partner and you require access to the Virtual Learning Environment you can request this via this online form.
