Avondale College - Australia's first 'University College'

Avondale College of Higher Education, the San's sister institution which offers Bachelor of Nursing training through its Faculty of Nursing and Health onsite at the SAH Clinical Education Centre has been accredited with the status of 'University College'.

This places Avondale on a five year pathway to achieving full-fledged university status.

The 'University College' status recognises that Avondale provides tertiary education in a least three fields of study, including education, nursing, ministry and theology, while also providing other higher degrees through research courses in at least one of these fields.

This major milestone for Avondale College is the first time a higher education provider has qualified for a change of category since the Federal government established new stringent standards for advancing to university status in 2011.
