Keep in Mind the Quality, Sir, when You Go with Width!
McCormack, Silvia
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v47 n3 p466-478 Nov 2007
Australian universities need to maintain their high reputation for quality in order to attract and retain buyers of Australian education-related products. Learners are becoming increasingly discerning in terms of what they are buying and why they should buy it. Thus, quality is a critical issue for Australian university programs in general as well as university foundation programs in particular. This paper describes the quality assurance process for the Monash University Foundation Year, a pre-tertiary pathway program for international students into Monash University Australia, Malaysia or Monash College Diploma 1 or Diploma 2 programs. The program is managed by a commercial arm of Monash University (Monash College Pty. Ltd.) and delivered by licensed providers offshore and in Australia. Quality assurance is seen as a means to improve and enhance the learning experience of students as well as a risk management strategy. (Contains 1 figure.)
