Staff Exchange

If you are interested in partnering with Aston University, please complete this form and a member of our partnerships team will get back to you shortly. 

Aston has staff exchange agreements with over 50 universities, in 22 different countries around the world. This type of partnership facilitates inbound and outbound teaching or training activities with academic and professional staff.

Many of these partnerships are within the Erasmus+ framework, therefore staff members can receive Erasmus+ funding to support their mobility. European institutions who participate in Erasmus+ do not need to have a specific staff exchange agreement to host Erasmus staff training mobility, therefore many EU institutions not listed here will also offer staff exchange.

For further information on participation read more in the Erasmus+ staff mobility scheme.

For information on any of our non-Erasmus+ partners, please refer to the school web pages. Many of our staff exchange agreements underpin research activity. Please also view the research collaboration tab for information.

Teaching Partnerships

If you are interested in partnering with Aston University, please complete this form and a member of our partnerships team will get back to you shortly. 

Aston has agreements with a number of academic institutions and organisations within the UK and across the world.  These agreements have been developed to provide a clear academic route for students studying on specific programmes with our partners, and who meet the agreed entry criteria, to study at Aston. Enquire at  international@aston.ac.uk 

Glossary of Terms

Articulation: Under an Articulation agreement, students from a partner institution’s course who satisfy the academic entry requirements are automatically entitled (on academic grounds)to be admitted with advanced credits to enable them to enter an Aston University degree course in Year 2 or Final Year. These arrangements normally involve the transfer of credit from the partner course to contribute to the Award completed at Aston University.

Double Degree / Award:  The student undertakes a programme resulting in an award where the partner institution recognise the credits gained at each institution leading to the full degree award.

Exchange Double Degree: Under the agreement, the student undertakes and completes an exchange programme for one academic year with credits awarded from both institutions leading to degrees awarded by each awarding institution.

Franchise / Shared Delivery: This is the process by which the University agrees to authorise a partner to deliver part or all of one (or more) of Aston University’s approved programmes.

Joint Award: The student undertakes a programme where arrangements are joint in all aspects, involving all partners in all aspects of programme design, development, delivery, assessment, management and decision-making on student achievement.

Progression: The student successfully completes an award at an institution or provider, to progress to the next stage of study at Aston University. For example a student progresses from a provider’s Foundation course to the first year of an Undergraduate programme or from a Pre Masters course to a Masters programme.

The award is a single certificate (signed by all partners) attesting to the successful completion of the jointly delivered course.

For more information about these partnerships, please contact the partner institution in the first instance.
