Kaplan will use some aspect of its expertise and scale to do something that meets student demand and the strategic aims of the university. Before entering a partnership we seek to ensure: a)Strategic commitment at a senior level b)Collaborative and long term approach c)Desire to work together to maximise the student experience University partnerships
