This section gives you a snapshot of how the tertiary education sector is performing – by individual organisation, type of organisation, and overall.
This section gives you a snapshot of how the tertiary education sector is performing – by individual organisation, type of organisation, and overall.

You’ll also find information on how we calculate performance, including the current methodologies we have developed for some of the educational performance indicators (EPIs) .
You can see:
Educational performance reports on individual tertiary education organisations (TEOs)  
EPI interactive charts are available using our current methodology (2015 onwards). You can also use the charts to see EPI information on the type of TEO and the sector. 
For transitional industry training organisations, EPIs are provided in PDF reports using our:
current methodology from 2016 onwards
previous methodology from 2009 to 2017
What are the levels of study?
Every New Zealand qualification receives a level on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) . This is based on the complexity of learning, with level one being the least complex and level 10 the most complex.

How enrolments influence performance
The nature of enrolments at each organisation influences its performance. For example, part-time and extra-mural students often have work or family commitments, which may mean they devote less time and energy to their studies. They might also have different study goals.
The Canterbury earthquakes had an impact on Lincoln University and the University of Canterbury. Decreases in enrolments can have a flow-on effect on both qualification completion and the retention of students.
In 2020, COVID-19 had an impact on enrolment numbers for many organisations, which may have in turn affected performance. Please note that the full impact of COVID-19 on EPIs will be evident in future updates as longer-term EPIs, particularly qualification completion, are confirmed.
Tertiary Education Strategy (TES) priority groups
Through the TES and our other sector guidance, we set expectations for the performance of tertiary education organisations (TEOs) . We prioritise an outcomes focus, especially for traditionally underserved groups including Māori and Pacific Peoples. Our information shows how those groups performed compared to all students.
