Whitecliffe achieves great results in PBRF evaluation

Last year, the Tertiary Education Commission carried out its largest-ever evaluation of research quality in New Zealand's tertiary education sector. This was to determine the allocation of the Performance Based Research Fund (PBRF). Whitecliffe performed very well, gaining first place rankings in the medium-sized Tertiary Education Organisation (TEO) group in two crucial measures. First, Whitecliffe has the highest ratio of active researchers to degree-level students - over three times the average for the group. And second, it has the highest ratio of active researchers to overall faculty. Whitecliffe was also by far the best funded Private Training Establishment (PTE), receiving $232,000 in research funding - more than twice as much as the nearest PTE. The results show that Whitecliffe is the country's most research active PTE and reinforce that teaching at Whitecliffe is strongly underpinned by high-quality research. They also prove that while it may be relatively small, Whitecliffe continues to punch above its weight in terms of research.
