University Progression Agreement

Step 7: contract negotiation and signing a. If you are satisfied that all of the above questions have been agreed, send the partner a draft contract (the international relations team provides a template). If possible, you should use the university model agreed by the contract team. If you are using a project provided by the partner, it must be approved by the IR and Contracts teams. B. In addition to a detailed progress agreement, some partners are happy to sign a Memorandum of Understanding that sets out the general intention to cooperate. A declaration of intent is not a prerequisite, but if it is strictly necessary, it can be agreed at the school or faculty level. It is not possible to sign an agreement at the university level. c.

The agreement should be signed by the dean of the faculty and not by the director. d. Send the international relations team a copy of the signed agreement. This is a good practice for one of the representatives of the school and the faculty to visit the partner university regularly in order to develop the relationship and meet potential candidates (for example. B of the reception conferences for first-year students and the survey of candidates from the second year). The partner institution should not be based on the possibility of commercializing the possibility on behalf of the school. We want you to have the best chance of achieving your dream career. Therefore, we are committed to offering you a reduced UCAS rate at your ballot rate, which is at least one rating lower than the advertised requirements. Let`s take the example of sport and the science of exercise. The course is promoted to the CCC (Level A) or the MMM (BTEC), but for a study partner, the offer would be reduced to CCD or MMP. In the case of access to ER students, an offer is made at three points of performance/distinction below the announced entry requirements.

For more information and advice on progress agreements, visit the university`s international relations team in the field of recruitment and international development. As a progression partner, you will receive an interview on our professional accreditation courses that will give you a leg on the contest. Step 5: Agree on the number of students and the recruitment schedule k. Include the maximum number of places available per year, taking into account that it is generally not cost-effective to enter into a progression agreement for less than 5 students per year. l. Agree with the partner on a recruitment schedule that includes a deadline for receiving applications. It is advisable to interview the candidates face to face, which can be taken into account in the schedule of visits to the partner institution. Joint and progress agreements should establish strong partnerships and coordination between the university and the partner institution, encourage recruitment and promote the objectives of the university`s internationalization strategy. Step 3: Determine curriculum compatibility g. program exchange and detailed post-JC teaching and evaluation methods to determine course compatibility. Partner institutions should provide a copy of the program in English (a list of english course unit titles is not enough).

H. Check the partner`s ranking scheme. They should ensure that the partner university students have covered at a similar level and through a similar evaluation process (or will be ready to cover one or two concepts as part of an expanded introduction process in Manchester) all the main materials taught in the basic modules of the first year in Manchester.
