Good Universities Guide Confirms Strong Performance by RUN Universities
The 2013 edition of the Good Universities Guide has confirmed the strength of the Regional University Network (RUN) universities in access and equity, entry flexibility, and the educational experience.
The Chair of RUN, Professor David Battersby, welcomed the new edition of the guide and the performance of RUN universities.
"RUN universities received high ratings for teaching quality and overall student satisfaction. Our institutions also scored highly on access by equity groups, Indigenous participation, and entry flexibility," Professor Battersby said.
"RUN universities are recognised for human capital development through the quality of teaching and learning outcomes, and are among the leaders in teaching to students with diverse needs.
"Our institutions have pioneered higher education access schemes that enable low socio-economic status, regional or remote students, first in family, mature aged and Indigenous students to participate and succeed at university," Professor Battersby said.
"Higher education at RUN universities transforms lives. We educate people throughout their lives, contribute to changing skills needs in the workplace, and to human capital and productivity in regional Australia and nationally."
