To ensure that all new collaborations are appropriately strategic and high-quality, all staff must refer to and use the appropriate guidance and forms prior to any binding discussion or negotiations with an external partner.

Schools should also make contact with the Global Partnerships team at an early stage for professional support in the assessment, business planning, and contract negotiation of any agreement.

International College Dundee new proposals process

The International College Dundee (ICD) collaboration are managed by the Global Partnerships team.

Any new proposals relating to the growth and strategic direction of ICD, including partnerships that involve ICD as a key element, must first be considered by the collaborations Steering Board.
