University of Hull Educational Partnerships

The University of Hull has a range of Educational Partners from sub-regional, national and international organisations. Some of these partners collaboratively deliver University of Hull HE Level awards and others work with the University to raise the aspirations of pre-19 and adult students to progress to Higher Education.

The Federation

The Federation is a group of institutions delivering Higher Education, whose main validation partner is the University of Hull. Federation members work between and across institutions to provide HE-level learning opportunities across the sub-regions.

The Associate Institutions Network

The Associate Institutions Network is a pre-HE partnership with schools and colleges, with the tripartite focus of activity with associate institutions: social responsibility in addressing the social and economic challenges in the region; progression and student recruitment; and collaborative debate on pertinent educational policy and practice, including the implications for teacher training and continuing professional development.

International Partnerships

International Partnerships are an important aspect of the University's relationships. The University has a range of international relationships with partner institutions. These relationships cover progression agreements and dual award arrangements, to the delivery of distance-taught programmes for University of Hull awards. The University also engages in joint research projects and post graduate delivery.

Access and Widening Participation

The University of Hull was a partner and host of Aimhigher Humber and the Yorkshire, and Humber East Lifelong Learning Network (YHELLN), in support of widening participation and socio-economic regeneration. YHELLN had a key role in supporting the development of progression agreements and flexible learning across key vocational areas. The University of Hull was also a partner with Aimhigher York and North Yorkshire. Aimhigher Humber and Aimhigher York and North Yorkshire were important partners supporting the raising of achievement and aspiration of target populations of young people across the sub-regions.

In response to the closure of Aimhigher in July 2011, the University created an Access Office to continue to support partner schools, academies and colleges in terms of encouraging Access to HE for under-represented groups.

Other Partnerships

Other Partnerships include University faculties and colleagues working with sub-regional partners in local authorities, schools and colleges in fields, such as progression to HE, teacher training, professional development, ‘Every Child Matters' policy subgroups. Similarly, health and NHS partnerships, as well as business groups and network-based trainers, are also important areas of engagement for the University and the sub-regions.
