10 To enter into any agreement for the incorporation within the University of any other institution and for taking over its rights, property and liabilities and for any other purpose not repugnant to this Instrument.
11 To join with any other College, University or with any other public or private Body, Institution, Authority or Association having in view or promoting any purpose the same as or similar or related to any purpose of the University, or to appoint one or more representatives to act upon any such Body, Institution, Authority or Association, in either case for such purposes as may be agreed upon or as may be provided for or permitted by law, on such terms and conditions as may from time to time be prescribed by the University.
12 To form partnerships and contractual arrangements with other institutions worldwide for the joint award of qualifications, or so that such institutions may offer tuition and assessment towards qualifications awarded by the University.”

III. For the purposes of any contract signifying collaboration, the signature of the Chancellor or his deputed authority together with the affixing of the University Seal shall be considered sufficient to convey the authority of the University.
IV. Any contract signifying collaboration may be limited by time or other conditions.
