TheSchool ofArchitecture is proud to announce the news of an exciting new future collaboration. Head of School Derek Cottrell, with Principal Teaching Fellow Pam Locker and Senior Lecturer Manish Mandhar both from the School of Architecture, together with Chris Spendlove, the University Registrar, and Linsey Woodcock, the Head of Academic Quality, Standards and Partnerships, have just returned from a week-long visit to our Hong Kong Partners, the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI). The visit was to support our Partners in gaining local accreditation for twoUniversity ofLincoln top-up degrees in both Design for Exhibition and Museums (DEM) and Architecture, to be delivered inHong Kong.

The outcome was that the Accreditation Panel will recommend the approval of both programmes for delivery from September 2014. The Chair of the Panel, Emeritus Professor Alan Lindsay, particularly praised the close working relationship between HKDI and the University of Lincoln which had been developed over a number of years.

The new programmes represent a significant step in further internationalising teaching and learning in the School of Architecture.
