By working together, we can provide complementary areas of expertise and collaborate on joint research projects. We have recently established the King George Laboratory for researching biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences, for example.
SGUL and Kingston University are also part of the South West Academic Network (SWan) – see below.
Focusing primarily on health, social care and education, the alliance aims to enhance teaching and research opportunities for both staff and students.

A validated field is designed and delivered by the partner institution but awarded and quality assured by Kingston University. The field is 'unique' to the partner and is not offered by the University or by any other partner institutions.
Franchised field (F)
A franchised field is designed and assessed by Kingston University but is delivered by a partner institutuion. Normally, the field will also be delivered within the University and/or by a number of partners in a network (where this is the case, the partnership is co-ordinated and managed by the University).
Dual award (DA)
A dual award is where separate awards are conferred by more than one institution upon a student upon completion of a single programmeof study.
Joint award (JA)
A joint award is where a single award is conferred jointly by more than one institution upon a student upon completion of a single programme of study.
Joint delivery (JD)
This is where a Kingston University award is jointly delivered by the partner and the University (this should not be confused with a 'joint award'. For quality assurance purposes, provision which is jointly delivered is treated in the same way as franchised provision.
