Articulation is a process whereby students at another institution are admitted to the University with advanced standing. Commonly known as 1+3 or 2+2 arrangement (other combinations are possible) where a student studies for 1 or 2 years at another institution and enters the University of Glasgow for a further 2 years or 3 years to qualify with a Glasgow degree. The University reviews the curriculum, assessments, etc of a specified programme(s) at another organisation and judges if it (or a specified part) provides an appropriate basis, and is of an appropriate academic standard, to allow advanced entry on a standard and regular basis to a programme leading to a University of Glasgow award. Arrangements normally involve credit accumulation and transfer, so that credit achieved for the approved study at the first institution is transferred to contribute to the programme and award completed at the University. You can find out more here.
