Institutional Effectiveness at NCI

Institutional Effectiveness at NCI is a commitment to transparency, consistency and connectivity in decision-making.

QIE seeks to support best practice in decision-making at a programme and institutional level through the production and dissemination of qualitative and quantitative data on NCI's quality, relevance and impact.

The QIE Office strives to provide the NCI Academic Governance and Management Teams with robust and timely data to inform effective academic strategic and operational decision-making.
