Proposed Higher Education Standards Framework: IRU Response

The IRU endorses the Higher Education Standards Framework, which the Higher Education Standards Panel released on 23 April 2014 for comment, with proposals for some few amendments to achieve full clarity.

The Framework provides a significant reworking of the standards to be used to assess suitability for registration as a higher education provider and for registration of higher education qualifications. The Framework is well pitched, setting out the outcomes expected without unnecessarily dictating how they should be achieved or explicitly or implicitly presuming current approaches to higher education delivery.
