ECU ranks first in student satisfaction for second straight year

ECU has outperformed its public university counterparts across the nation and ranked first in student satisfaction for a second consecutive year.

In results from the QILT (Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching) survey released today, 85.3 per cent of ECU students who responded rated their overall educational experience positively, well above the national average of 79.3 per cent.

ECU was also ranked the top public university for teaching quality, skills development and student support.

Acting Vice-Chancellor Arshad Omari said QILT provided significant indicators for the sector because it was based on student and graduate experience of a university.

“ECU is committed to putting students at the centre of everything we do and it’s pleasing to see this is being recognised at a national level,” Professor Omari said.

ECU was again rated the top WA public university by graduates for overall graduate satisfaction, teaching and skills.

The Federal Education Department funds the QILT research which is done by the Social Research Centre at the ANU.

The full QILT results are available at www.qilt.edu.au.
