Collaborative Partnerships

Global Partnerships

The Code of Practice for Collaborative Partnerships provides the framework, principles and processes for the effective identification, development, approval, management and review of all collaborative partnerships and associated programmes of study (including undergraduate, postgraduate taught, postgraduate research), and should be read in conjunction with relevant sections of the Code of Practice for Programme Design, Development, Approval and Review.

The key aspects contained within the Code of Practice are:

  1. Developing and Approving New Collaborative Partners, Student Mobility Exchanges and Programmes of Study;
  2. Reviewing, Amending and Enhancing Existing Collaborative Partnerships, Student Mobility Exchanges and Programmes of Study;
  3. Managing Existing Programmes of Collaborative Partnerships, Student Mobility Exchanges and Programmes of Study.

A list of current Swansea University Collaborative Partners is available here. Please also see the Collaboration Partnership Principles.

This Code of Practice strives to be evidence based, and is based upon the expectations and indicators of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education (QAA).

Academic Quality Services welcomes feedback on the effectiveness of this Code of Practice and will seek to implement improvements throughout the year to improve the user experience. Please send any feedback to with the Subject Header ‘CoP Feedback’.

We hope this Code of Practice proves useful and easy to use.
