Types of Partnerships
UCC PARTNERSHIPS DIVISION

“Inspired by our past to help shape your future”

We are happy to explore the following types of partnership with prospective regional/international partners:

  • Franchise/License

UCC may license other institutions to deliver programmes in its entirety, or stages of programmes, designed by UCC staff, leading to an award or the award of credit/s by UCC.

  • Joint

The University of the Commonwealth Caribbean and its institutional partners will collaborate and negotiate to arrive at a mutual agreement to bring new educational services to joint venture campus locations. 

  • Validation

UCC may accredit a programme developed by another institution as equivalent to a UCC award, or leading to the award of a specific number of credits.

  • Distance/Online Learning

A programme of study whereby a student would not normally attend a UCC campus or that of a partner institution. Attendance may be required for residential sessions, for study support or for assessment purposes. Collaborative programmes offered by distance/online learning may apply the franchise, validation, joint or double model. The collaborative partner may manage elements of delivery, support and/or assessment, as agreed at validation.​​

  • Articulation

An arrangement whereby programmes and modules delivered by a partner institution are formally recognised for the purposes of advanced standing towards a UCC award.​
