Congratulations! The WINHEC Board of Affirmation and the WINHEC Executive Board were thrilled to award full accreditation to Sámi University College (SUC) when it meet in Melbourne this month. Sámi University College is only the second Indigenous institution to be awarded full accreditation by WINHEC.
The international Review Team reported that SUC is the only institution of higher education where Sámi language is the medium throughout Sámi eduction, administration and research. This commitment to Sámi language continues to build an indigenous nation of Sámi children, youth and adults. SUC is unique when compared to other institutions where the official language of that country would be the predominate language of education.
