Partner institutions

St George's, University of London

We run our Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education in partnership with St George's, University of London (SGUL). Available courses cover nursing, midwifery, rehabilitation sciences, radiography and social work.

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 London Academic Network (SWAN) – see below.

South West London Academic Network (SWAN)

Kingston University is part of the tripartite alliance with St George's, University of London (SGUL) and Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL).

Focusing primarily on health, social care and education, the alliance aims to enhance teaching and research opportunities for both staff and students.

Types of partnerships

Validated field (V)

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 institution. 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).

Double award (DA)

A double award is where separate awards are conferred by more than one institution upon a student upon completion of a single programme of 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.

Articulation agreement (AA)

A formal agreement recognising the credit rating of a named qualification of another institution or organisation creating the opportunity to transfer credit and enable student entry from the named institution or organisation with advanced standing and specific credit to a university award.
