Establish a new partnership

The first step when considering a new partnership is to submit the online notification form to the International Strategy & Partnerships Office.

Global Partnerships Protocol

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

All staff should read the Protocol 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.
