Global Partnerships Policy

The Global Partnerships Policy provides a practical route map to assist staff in the development and management of international partnerships.

All staff should read the Policy prior to any binding discussions or negotiations with an external partner.

Developing international partnership opportunities is not risk-free and the University’s reputation must be protected.

Please note particular reference to risk evaluation and due diligence.
