The announcement today that Avondale College has been admitted as a University College is an historic event for Avondale College and Australian independent higher education.
Admission to University College status recognises Avondale’s high-quality teaching and research.
Avondale is one of Australia’s oldest colleges with a history tracing back to 1892. The College began preparing students for degrees through partner and affiliation programs in the 1950’s and commenced its own degree programs in 1974. Avondale has been offering doctoral research programs for 13 years.
Avondale was the first independent higher education provider to be awarded self-accrediting status by the national regulator, TEQSA.
