A Validated Institution is an institution which has received approval from the University of Kent to offer courses devised, delivered and assessed by the institution but approved by the University for University of Kent credit and academic award. The courses are delivered by the validated institution to the validated Institutions’ own students. The University is responsible for the standards of awards and quality assurance of the University approved courses at the validated Institution.
Annex L to the Code of Practice is the main procedure which should be used by existing Validated Institutions regarding the quality assurance of courses of study delivered by their Institutions which lead to the award of a certificate, diploma or degree of the University.
