Collaborating Institutions are existing education providers, collaborating with the Open Christian University in the design and delivery of an approved curriculum. OCU collaborates with different institutions in various ways to ensure quality, access, and affordance. The most common forms include, but are not limited to:
a) Validation: a form of arrangement where OCU accredits a program developed [and often to be delivered] by a partner institution as equivalent to an OCU award or leading to the award of a specific number of credits in the OCU credit framework. The partner institution has responsibility for updating program content and program content will be reviewed as part of the partner institution’s Collaborative Review.
b) Joint Program: is a study program developed and/or provided jointly by two or more higher education institutions, possibly also in cooperation with other institutions, leading to the award of  either institution,  double/ multiple degrees or  a joint degree. Learn More.
c) Articulation: an arrangement whereby programs and modules delivered by a partner institution are formally recognized for credit transferability or for the purposes of advanced standing towards an OCU award.
