Distance Delivery


This is a form of transnational education which involves the delivery of a University of Glasgow programme by University of Glasgow staff using the premises and facilities of another organisation (often another Higher Education Institution) physically and geographically distanced from Glasgow’s UK campuses. The University of Glasgow retains overall control of delivery and the formal teaching is undertaken mainly by its staff. The partner institution may provide some teaching, administrative or learning support. ‘Offshore provision’ and ‘flying faculty’ are other terms used for this type of collaboration. You can find out more information here.
