The University engages in different types of partnership arrangements as follows:

Distance delivery describes an arrangement whereby a course is wholly delivered and assessed by the University at another organisation's premises.

An articulation arrangement facilitates entry with advanced standing from another institution to a University course. Advanced standing is granted to regular cohorts of students completing a period of study on a named course at a named partner.

Foundation degree progression is where progression with advanced standing is granted to regular cohorts of students from a named foundation degree to a University course. This includes any level 6 or 7 course designed as a stand-alone top-up course.

School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is a specific agreement between the University and a School (or consortium of Schools) by which students complete 60 level 7 credits at NTU and the equivalent of 60 level 6 credits at the SCITT School.

Full definitions of each type of partnership arrangement can be found in Section 10 of the NTU Quality Handbook. PDF icon
