Academic collaboration - communication agreements

Arrangements for communication

16.1   For day to day management issues it is crucial that there is a named contact person at the partner institution. This may be the programme leader, another member of academic staff or an administrator.

16.2   Each partner institution will have two named contacts at QMU. The Collaborative Academic Lead from the Host Division is responsible for liaison regarding academic issues, policy and regulations. The Collaborations Team in the Academic Administration is responsible for administrative arrangements, including Boards of Examiners. Joint Board of Studies meetings will be arranged by staff from GQE who will normally provide secretarial support. All correspondence between QMU and the partner institution must be copied to the Collaborative Academic Lead and contact at the partner institution.

16.3   The responsibilities of the Collaborative Academic Lead and Academic Administration are detailed in the University’s operational Collaborative Agreements Manual.
