What is an articulation agreement?
Articulation is a formal relationship between two programmes, where students begin their degree programme at their own university before transferring to a similar programme at the University of Sheffield. These arrangements are commonly referred to as a 1+3 or 2+2 etc. Students following this route will be awarded a Sheffield degree on completion of their course.
Articulation arrangements are subject to formal agreements between the parties and careful examination of the syllabus taught at the partner university. Establishing an articulation involves a number of colleagues from both academic as well as professional services departments, including Faculty Internationalisation Leads, Partnerships, LeTS, Faculty Finance, and Admissions.
How long does it take to set up?
Time scales can vary tremendously and are dependent on a series of factors. As a rough guideline, please allow a minimum of six months from the initial enquiry to completion of the articulation agreement.
Why are we doing it?
The University of Sheffield has developed many successful articulation partnerships. The establishment of new partnerships supports the objectives outlined in our internationalisation strategy by hepling international student recruitment and increasing the diversity of our student population. The collaborative nature of the relationships can also strengthen research partnerships, international academic networks and other types of collaboration.
