Arrangement Types Arrangement Types

Partnerships provision at the University takes several forms:


This means that a partner (or 'associate') develops a course (with support from the University where appropriate) and the proposed course is considered by a Validation Panel chaired by UEA and including UEA and external academics.  If successful, the course will be delivered by the college for a period set by the panel, after which it will be reviewed and revalidated. 

We validate courses at City College Norwich, Easton&Otley College, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London and INTO UEA.

Jointly Validated

Since September 2007, in partnership with the University of Essex, UEA has jointly validated courses at University Campus Suffolk (UCS).  The UCS partnership covers courses at the Ipswich Hub, Great Yarmouth College, Lowestoft College, Suffolk New College and West Suffolk College.


This means that a partner college delivers a course that has been developed by UEA.
