NCIU requires the following information from an institution that seeks an Articulation Agreement with us:
- CVs and copy of highest degree award of all teaching staff. You should only teach students at a level that is at least one level below your highest qualification. You should also have a qualification, and ideally practical experience (if appropriate), in the subject matter that is taught.
If you teach Certificate or Diploma level students, you should have at least a Bachelor’s degree.
If you teach Cross-Cultural Competence, you should ideally have a degree in Intercultural Studies and ministered in a cross-cultural context.
- Program outline: This should include all the modules that make up the program.
- Module descriptors: For each module, you should provide a descriptor, which details Course Name, Level (e.g., Certificate), a Content Description, Learning Outcomes, Transferrable Skills, and a Literature List.
NCIU can provide you with a template if this is not available yet or needs to be adapted. The module descriptors can be customized to your ministry context.
- Assessment: Your courses need to be graded so that NCIU can issue awards. Assessment types can be discussed. Timed tests, oral exams, written papers, or recordings are common ways to assess the work of students.
- Payment per student: The Articulation Agreement contains a Financial Obligations section. The NCIU fees per student can be discussed with the NCIU representative and will take into consideration the economic position of students studying at the institution seeking an Articulation Agreement.
The Chief Academic Officer will evaluate the information sent and then discuss any action that needs to be taken before the Articulation Agreement can be drawn up. The number of credits per course will also be determined, and NCIU will allocate a course number.
NCIU will prepare the Articulation Agreement, date, and sign it in the appropriate places and send it to the institution seeking an Articulation Agreement for dating and signing. The Articulation Agreement contains a renewal date.
If you do not have an established program yet, NCIU can help you develop a contextualized study pathway.
