The purpose of this paper is to present the authors’ views of university–multi academy trusts’ (MATs) opportunities for future interconnectivity that could support successful partnerships.

The authors developed a matrix of university–MATs partnerships that could help identifying potential scenarios of collaboration between universities and MATs.

Four potential scenarios of collaborations are proposed (board membership, academic supervision, recruitment support and academic support).

Research limitations/implications
Scholars in the field can further investigate the four proposed scenarios in the matrix in future studies.

Practical implications
The matrix will be useful for universities and MATs management for potential cooperation in the future.

The study proposes four scenarios of cooperation between MATs and universities.
