Cohort System

Another advantage of joining Artemis is that we offer a cohort system. This means that you will spend from day one until the end of your academic year with the same group of students. You will have all your classes with the same group of students and develop a deeper sense of community with your fellow students.

Students attending the Artemis cohort system report feeling closer and more engaged with their classmates. Students also can rely on their friends outside of the typical classroom environment, which provides them with a great support that comes from the group. It can be very comforting to know that you’re not the only student trying to balance work, home, school, family and friends.

Post-graduation, your cohort friends will become your lifelong connections of working professionals around the world.

Accreditation

Artemis World Campus study centers are subject to a thorough accreditation process prior to delivery of NCUK - a Consortium of 50 leading international universities - programmes and are required to take part in a regular schedule of audits. In addition to this, NCUK engages regularly with Artemis to develop and undertake a Center Quality Plan in order to help drive continuous improvement.

Comprehensive and effective quality assurance underpins all NCUK programmes. This ensures that students completing an NCUK programme are of the necessary standard to succeed on appropriate degree programmes in NCUK Universities.

We maintain academic standards and enhance quality through the procedures and infrastructure that comprise the NCUK Quality Assurance Framework. NCUK procedures are modeled on those commonly in use for collaborative provision in UK universities and where relevant, conform to Quality Assurance Agency’s Quality Code. The NCUK Board of Directors has delegated its authority to the Academic Quality Board. The Academic Quality Board is an independently constituted body which sits outside of NCUK’s management structure and is composed of external professorial-level academics. To protect the academic integrity of the Northern Consortium and the NCUK Universities, NCUK has a governance structure that ensures standards are maintained.

All NCUK programmes are subject to monitoring and regular review using the NCUK Product Development Framework. All programmes are subject to an Annual Validity Review that assesses the overall programme and individual modules to ascertain their validity and reliability based on quantitative data and qualitative feedback from students, study centers and universities. Teaching staff have the opportunity to contribute to this process by providing feedback in Marker’s Reports. All of NCUK’s programmes are reviewed periodically, when a review takes place all Study Centres will be asked for feedback as part of a formal consultation. Any significant changes to NCUK’s programmes are reviewed and approved by a Validation Panel made up of external subject experts.
