The University continued to perform strongly against external measure of academic quality in 2009. UOW will receive $3.275 million in the funding package which contains an excellence component worth $2.5 million and an improvement component of $746,487. This year the fund was split between “Excellence” and the new category of “Improvement”. UOW obtained two (A1) ratings and two (A2s) for Excellence as well as ranking in two Improvement categories.
Only seven universities in the country received an A1 ranking for Excellence.
The University of Wollongong is one of only four universities in the country to score in the Band A in all four discipline groupings in the Federal Government’s 2009 Learning and Teaching Performance Fund.
UOW has been rewarded for its commitment to high quality learning and teaching across the multiple discipline groups of (a) science, computing, engineering, architecture and agriculture; (b) business, law and economics; (c) humanities, arts and education; and (d) health.
In the four years of the Learning and Teaching Performance Fund, UOW has been ranked first twice and third on the other two occasions.
The assessment of UOW’s ranking in learning and teaching is also supported by the University’s performance in the Australian Learning and Teaching Council’s Citations over the past three years. In this peer reviewed scheme, UOW has won the highest number of awards in the country -- 28 out of a possible 30.
