Academic Development and Quality Enhancement

Partner Institutions

Partner institutions offering validated or franchised provision 

The current list of University of Sussex courses delivered by local and national partners is on the left-hand side of the page.

Validated courses

A validated course is designed and delivered by the partner institution but awarded and quality assured by the University of Sussex. The course is not offered by the University or by any of its other partner institutions.

Franchised courses

A franchised course is designed and assessed by the University of Sussex but is delivered by a partner institution.

Partner status, in the context of validated or franchised provision, is achieved following a process of institutional recognition. This leads to recognition by the University of Sussex Council for the purposes of delivering courses that lead to an award of the University.

Institutions interested in entering into partnership with the University should contact Gavin Harrison,, +44 (0)1273 877063.
