Sub-Committee on University Entrance

About the Committee

CUAP established a sub-committee on university entrance to coordinate advice from universities to NZQA to define a common standard of entrance to universities.

What we do

The sub-committee provides information on the administration of discretionary entrance, coordinates the evaluation of overseas qualifications presented for the purposes of admission, evaluates university foundation programmes offered by non-university providers in New Zealand, offers policy advice on matters related to the secondary-tertiary interface, and ensures university staff are appropriately involved in curriculum development and examination in the senior secondary school.
