Subcommittee on University Entrance

About the Subcommittee

The Committee on University Academic Programmes (CUAP) established a Subcommittee on University Entrance to coordinate advice from universities to the New Zealand Qualifications Authority to define a common standard of entrance to universities.

What we do

The Subcommittee 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 sector.

Frequency of meetings: annual.
