This paper is the second in a series of reviews of Cycle 5. The first paper can be found here.

This paper uses these commendations, affirmations and recommendations (CARs) as a lens through which to examine findings of Cycle 5 academic audit reports. Overall, results indicate that New Zealand universities have maintained high academic quality standards and there are no issues of systemic concern. These findings are reflective of the sector as a whole and will apply differently to individual universities.

AQA would like to thank universities and audit panel members who provided feedback on their experiences of Cycle 5 Academic Audit and those who reviewed drafts of this paper.
