We publish information on the performance of tertiary education organisations (TEOs) based on agreed educational performance indicators (EPIs) .

Educational performance indicator reports

Our Educational performance indicator (EPI) reports are designed to help TEOs manage and monitor their own performance and to deliver on their agreed tertiary education services.

EPI interactive charts

For universities, institutes of technology and polytechnic, wānanga and private training establishments the interactive charts provide information about the educational performance of individual TEOs. They include performance information for:

  • first year retention rate
  • cohort -based qualification completion rate
  • course completion rate
  • progression rate.

View these EPIs through interactive charts. You can decide what data to view and how to display it.

EPI reports

For industry training organisations the EPI reports include performance information for:

  • first-year retention rate for apprentices
  • cohort -based programme completion rate
  • credit achievement rate.

Note: The data from industry training organisations’ EPI reports is currently unavailable to view as interactive charts.

EPI reports for universities, institutes of technology and polytechnic, wānanga and private training establishments based on our current methodology are still available for 2015 to 2017.
