Westminster is committed to developing teaching, research and mobility partnerships that deliver exciting study and internship opportunities, globally relevant education, and internationally recognised research.

Partnership models

Exchange – the University and a Partner Institution agree to allow their students to study a semester or an academic year at the host institution on a reciprocal exchange arrangement. This involves accumulation and credit transfer back to their home institutions. Agreements can be University-wide or College specific

Progression – a transfer arrangement where students beginning a programme at another institution may be permitted direct entry with standard or advanced standing to an agreed similar programme at the University of Westminster

Research/Network Partner – collaboration between the University and the partner institution may relate to staff or student research or other academic collaborative projects

Transnational Education (TNE), including:

  • Franchise
    The University, as the awarding institution, authorises the whole or part of one of its own validated course/s for delivery by a Partner Institution.
  • External Validation
    A course not offered by the University is validated by the University for delivery by a Partner Institution. The course could be designed and developed jointly with the University or wholly by the Partner Institution.
  • Flying Faculty
    A University programme is validated to be delivered by employees of the University, often in block mode, at an organisation outside of the University. The University retains sole responsibility for the academic standards and quality of the learning opportunity.
