Partnerships

TYPES OF PARTNERSHIP ACTIVITIES

We offer many forms of partnership arrangement and have several types in place with our current partners.

v Academic partnership arrangements

Academic partnership arrangements enable students to study courses at a partner institution and/or at the University and upon successful completion receive a GTUZambia award.

v Validation arrangements

The University, as an awarding institution, judges that a programme (or part thereof) developed and delivered by another institution or organisation is of an appropriate quality and standard to lead to its award.

v Franchise arrangements

The University allows the whole or part of one or more of its own internally developed programmes to be delivered and assessed at a partner institution, leading to an award of the University.

v Joint degree/award

The Greenland Technical University and one or more other awarding institution(s) together provide a programme leading to a joint award of both, or all, institutions. Students are awarded a single certificate.

v Double degree/multiple degrees

The Greenland Technical University and one or more other awarding institution(s) together provide a joint programme leading to awards of both, or all, institutions.

Students are awarded two (or more) certificates, one from each of the degree-awarding bodies involved.

v Articulation arrangements

The University guarantees students entry to a Greenland Technical University course, as a result of successfully completing recognized prior study at a partner institution. Under such an arrangement, the University usually agrees to recognize and grant specific credit to applicants from a named programme of study pursued in the partner institution. Unlike progression arrangements, the relevant University Department does not have the right to refuse admission to a student who has fulfilled the agreed conditions for entry.
