The university’s 11 academic colleges provide more than 300 degree programs representing a wide range of teaching and learning opportunities. Programs in business, engineering, law and the arts rank in the top 10 nationally among all public universities. UT’s unique partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy and nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory addresses critical issues in energy, transportation, climate and the environment.
Our Platinum Partners benefit from the following:
- Profiling current undergraduate teaching and learning
- Access to high quality potential future postgraduates
- Sustained promotion of the institution’s global profile
- Partner institutions’ connections through participation at the UA Global Summit & Academic Advisory Board
These institutions appoint a representative to UA’s Academic Advisory Board, which oversees the programme’s academic rigour, therefore maintaining strategic involvement with UA’s growth and development. Platinum Partners also benefit from various promotional and communication opportunities to our global student audience.
We would be honoured to be actively supported in our aims to recognise excellence and innovation at undergraduate level by the most renowned academic faculties and research departments across the globe.
