3 Introduction Introduction The University of Brighton is a higher education corporation established in accordance with the Education Reform Act 1988 amended by the Further and Higher Education Act The former Act provided for the establishment of a corporation (the members of which would be known as the Board of Governors) which would be responsible for conducting the affairs of the institution. The 1992 Act amended the earlier Act in a number of ways. Most importantly, it allowed for the specification by the Privy Council of certain higher education corporations which would have the power to give degrees and other awards. Designated institutions should have: (i) an Instrument of Government providing for the constitution of governing body of the institution; and (ii) Articles of Government in accordance with which the institution is to be conducted. They would also be empowered, subject to consent of the Privy Council, to use the word university in their titles. The 1992 Act also established a single funding council for higher education in England and confirmed the abolition of the Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA). The degree-awarding powers of the CNAA would be vested in the successor institutions specified in accordance with the Act. Privy Council consent to the title University of Brighton was granted on 16 June The University agreed that the degree-awarding powers specified in the Act be adopted with effect from 1 September These powers relate to: (a) (b) awards granted to persons who complete an appropriate assessment, and awards granted to persons who complete an appropriate programme of supervised research and satisfy an appropriate assessment, and in this section award means any degree, diploma, certificate or other academic award or distinction and assessment includes examination and test. An institution specified in such an order may also: (a) (b) grant honorary degrees, and grant degrees to members of the academic and other staff of the institution. Any power conferred on an institution to grant awards in pursuance of this section includes power: (a) (b) (c) to authorise other institutions to do so on behalf of the institution; to do so jointly with another institution, and to deprive any person of any award granted to him by or on behalf of the institution in pursuance of this section (or, in the case of an award granted to
4 Introduction him by the institution and another institution jointly, to do so jointly with the other institution.) It shall be for the institution to determine in accordance with any relevant provisions of the instruments relating to or regulating the institution the courses of study or programmes of research, and the assessments, which are appropriate for the grant of any award and the terms and conditions on which any of the powers conferred under this section may be exercised. (Extracted from the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, section 76) The regulations referred to in the last paragraph above are contained in Part B of this document). These regulations became effective on 1 September Their efficacy, and appropriateness, will be carefully monitored. If necessary, a revised set of regulations will be prepared, considered by appropriate bodies in the institution and presented to the Board of Governors for approval.

28 Section B4 Courses offered in collaboration with other institutions 4 Courses offered in collaboration with other institutions 4.1 Introduction The university has the power to enter into a number of arrangements with other universities, colleges and other bodies in the UK or overseas to offer joint courses. Such courses may lead to the awards of the collaborating bodies as well as to the University of Brighton awards. All such arrangements must be approved in principle by the Board of Governors The university may take sole responsibility for the standard of the course and the award. If other higher education providers are involved they may either share responsibility or decide which partner is to accept it. In all cases the details of the proposed arrangements and the locus of responsibility must be set down in a memorandum of co-operation (in accordance with (4.2) below) Where a collaborative course can lead to a University of Brighton award, whether or not it may also lead to another award, the course must be validated, approved and reviewed in accordance with the procedures and subject to the same criteria as any award-bearing course offered by the university. Similarly the arrangements for student assessment and the conferment of the award must satisfy the normal requirements. 4.2 Memorandum of Co-operation All collaborative courses leading to an award must be covered by an agreed formal statement of the arrangements for collaboration in the form of a memorandum of co-operation which must be approved by the Chair of the Academic Board The purposes of the memorandum are to: (i) define the means by which the academic standards of the course will be maintained; (ii) ensure that collaborative arrangements are clearly set out and operate smoothly, and that clear channels of authority, accountability and executive action are identified If necessary, the university will require satisfactory evidence, through site visits and through contact and familiarity with the collaborating establishment s staff and facilities, of their suitability for the course arrangements as proposed A memorandum of co-operation must specify: (i) the names of the institutions or bodies which are parties to the agreed memorandum; (ii) the allocation of responsibility for the oversight and maintenance of academic standards and procedures for resolving any differences which might arise in respect of the course between the collaborating institutions. (iii) procedures and responsibilities for the periodic review of the course, including provision for the implementation of changes to the course required by validation, periodic review and annual monitoring in the collaborating institutions; (iv) procedures and responsibilities in respect of course management and monitoring. If these are to be divided between institutions, the arrangements will be specified;
