Tongan university eyes govt support after recruitment ban lifted

The Tongan Supreme Court last month lifted a recruitment ban imposed on Atenisi Institute by the Tonga National Qualifications and Accreditation Board.

The court ruled the Board had no right to cite non-compliance as grounds for banning the recruitment of students.

It said the legislation did not allow the board to sanction tertiary providers.

The dean at 'Atenisi University, Michael Horowitz, said they now wanted to work closely with the government of Pohiva Tu'i'onetoa.
