Distance Learning Programme: Offered using technology only, or mixed mode assessment supported by a local education provider

Full Programme (Validated by UK Institution) An existing course offered by an overseas institution that is validated by a UK institution. These programmes are usually assessed by the overseas institution using the overseas institution existing curriculum

Full Programme (Franchise) An existing UK qualification is offered locally (containing elements of UK curriculum only)

Joint Programme: A new qualification that is jointly developed and assessed by an overseas institution and UK institution and leads to joint degree award (two awards)

Twinning Programme (Articulation): - (2+2, 3+1): A programme in which 1, 2 or 3 years are studied locally and with 1 or 2 year are studied in the UK – leading to a single award and/or dual award

Transfer Programmes: Can be similar to twinning/articulation programmes (terms: transfer, articulation and twinning are often used interchangeably), but “transfer programmes” are ‘usually’ at foundation level and up to diploma level (2 Years) allowing students to transfer to bachelors (or advanced bachelors) locally or overseas.
