Dear Professor Shergold,
RE: TRANSPARENCY OF HIGHER EDUCATION ADMISSIONS PROCESSES
The Group of Eight (Go8) welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Higher Education Standards Panel (the Panel) on the issues raised in the consultation paper on transparency of higher education admissions processes. The Go8 is also pleased to have had the opportunity to discuss our perspectives directly with the Panel. Member institutions may make their own submissions to the review.
The Go8 believes that transparent, easily understood and readily available information for prospective students, families and schools on admission to higher education is a core responsibility for all higher education providers.
Principles on the Transparency in Admissions
The Go8 fully supports the 10 principles articulated in the Panel’s consultation paper and believes these are appropriately aligned with the new Higher Education Standards that relate to admission and the provision of information to prospective students.
