Will institutions that do not make a submission be considered?

We encourage all institutions to make submissions. However, regardless of your submission, we make our own assessment based on previous interviews, industry observations and our own research. Institutions that do not make submissions risk not having complete descriptions of their programmes fully considered, but where we find worthy institutions, we will initiate our own enquiries.
