When a great staff to student ratios isn’t everything

Times Higher names NZ’s Lincoln University as one of the world’s best 100 for staff to student ratios, (the only ANZ institution to make the cut). Good-o, but this may not mean much for students. Last year the New Zealand university auditor had a look at Lincoln and found, “there is a need for much more robust strategic planning related to teaching and learning, with objectives which can be evaluated and appropriate key performance indicators. An apparent lack of external referencing and academic benchmarking was an issue raised in the previous audit which remains relevant and did not appear to have been addressed in any systematic way,” ( CMM February 17 2017)
