Collaborative partners

The University of Bedfordshire's mission is to create a vibrant multi-cultural learning community enabling people to transform their lives.

In fulfilling our mission one of the values we are guided by is that of partnership, which is valued alongside collaboration as essential in meeting contemporary challenges, in providing access to learning, and in delivering an excellent student experience.

The University has a strong history of working in partnership, both locally and internationally, with many collaborations being developed over a long period of time.

This page has been created as a gateway to the University of Bedfordshire's website, principally those regarding quality assurance, for its collaborative partners.

Wherever possible the description of processes to be followed by collaborative partners is built into the University's Academic Quality Framework, alongside those for on-campus provision. Where there are processes specific to collaborations – for example, the procedures to be followed in institutional approval and review, and the definitions used in collaborative working – these are described in a specific process document, titled 'Partner approval, review and termination'.
