To identify partner organisations in collaborative provision.


HEFCE will be developing new funding routes for collaborative provision and consequently needs information about the types of organisations institutions collaborate with. In future it may be necessary to expand this coding frame to collect detailed information about individual named organisations.

Collaboration with external organisations should only be included where the external organisation has made a significant input to the course that affects the course for all, or nearly all, students on the course. This could include:

  • Input to course content/curriculum or assessment
  • Contribution to the startup or ongoing costs of the course, this may include sponsoring a number of places on the course but would exclude paying the fees for individual students on the course
  • Provision of work based or project work opportunities
  • A significant and ongoing contribution of staff time and/or resources to support course delivery

Collaboration does not cover the following activities:

  • Franchised provision
  • Input to course and curriculum design by professional bodies
  • Language years abroad and exchange programmes.
