UCOL supports the Government’s intention to keep improving the performance of tertiary institutions. We are committed to a process of continuous improvement and evolution to meet changing needs. We aim to meet government’s goals and exceed them, where possible.

 

Resources and initiatives were re-prioritised in 2010 and 2011 into actions designed to improve UCOL’s educational performance, focusing particularly on course completion rates and improvements have been made.
