Summary of Changes from Previous Version

8 July 2016 - policy amended to reflect the official name change of the University concurrent with the change to the University's Act and By-Law.

2 September 2015 - removed references to the redundant title 'UWS International' and replaced with Western Sydney International'.

The revised document includes amendments to replace the requirement for a comprehensive Academic Cooperation Agreement with a simple non-legally binding Memorandum of Academic Cooperation to establish a partnership between UWS and overseas educational institutions. Specific projects and legally binding activities will be included in supplemental agreements. Other key updates have been made to ensure the policy is consistent with the University's objectives.
