Statute No. 13: Affiliated and Associated Institutions

  1. Any college whether incorporated or not, or any educational establishment or any research institute or research centre wheresoever situated, may apply to be recognised as an affiliated or an associated institution of the University.
  2. Every such application shall be accompanied by evidence of the status, purpose and goals of the institution, and of the permanency of its establishment.
  3. The Senate shall obtain from the Academic Board a report on the status, purpose and goals of the institution, and, after receiving the report, shall decide whether the institution shall be affiliated or associated with the University; such affiliation or association when granted shall in no case be for a period of more than five years, but may be periodically renewed after report from the Academic Board.
  4. If it is desired that any of the courses or programs in the applicant institution, taken singly or in groups, shall be recognised by the University, as equivalent in scope and standard to certain courses or programs in the University, or as suitable to be included as part of the work required for a degree or diploma granted by the University—
    1. The applicant institution shall supply to the University full syllabuses of any such courses or programs referred to, with details as to the amount of lecture, tutorial, and practical work involved, and the names, qualifications, and experience of the teachers, and the standard of examinations in the institution concerned if these are to be recognised in lieu of corresponding examinations in the University.
    2. The Senate, after receiving the report of the Academic Board on the scope and standard of the courses or programs for which recognition is sought, shall decide which if any of the applicant institution’s courses and programs shall be recognised as qualifying courses and programs for admission to University Examinations, or which examinations in such institution may be accepted as suitable to form part of the requirements for a degree or diploma granted by the University. Such recognition shall in no case be for a period of more than five years, but may be periodically renewed after report from the Academic Board. The Senate reserves the right of inspecting at any time the buildings and equipment of any affiliated or associated institution, and of inquiring into the qualifications of the staff, and may nominate any person or persons for this purpose.
      1. Affiliated or associated institutions shall be required to advise the Senate of any relevant staff changes and of any change in the scope or standard of recognised courses or programs.
      2. The Academic Board shall consider any relevant staffing, course and program changes and shall recommend to the Senate whether recognition of the course or program and affiliation or association of the institution shall cease or continue.
    3. An affiliated or associated institution may from time to time apply for the recognition of further courses, programs or examinations. Such application shall be accompanied by the same details as are required in sub-section 4(a), and shall be dealt with as provided in sub-section 4(b).
    4. The Academic Board shall have power to make from time to time, subject to the approval of the Senate, such regulations as it may deem advisable for the admission, registration and control of students attending recognised courses and programs in an affiliated or associated institution as part of their work for a degree or diploma of the University.
