Graduates and staff live up to high expectations

It is said that high achievement takes place in the framework of high expectation.  If we measure the success of our University by the success of our graduates and staff then we can all be proud following the accolades of the past few weeks.

As we move forward with our ambitious international agenda, we are mindful of the need to continue to measure our performance against the best in the world.

One way to do this is to forge bonds with other high-quality universities around the world.

Helping shape public policy

Monday, 17 May 2010

The role of the University in informing public debate and helping to shape public policy is both dynamic and vital.

Marking out the start to the academic year

Monday, 8 March 2010

The early months of the year provide a valuable opportunity to reflect on the spectrum of academic activity at our University.

In the early part of the year we celebrated the academic excellence of the State's school leavers as they received their results and finalised their decisions for further study. This is very important since our University continues to be the ‘university of choice' for the highest achieving students - and we enrol around 85 per cent of school leavers with a TER of more than 95.
