ECU rated 5 stars again by Good Universities Guide

ECU has been rated five stars for teaching quality for the eighth year in a row, a record now unmatched by all but a few universities in Australia.

In the latest Good Universities Guide, graduates also rated ECU five stars for overall education experience, skills development, student support and median graduate salary levels.

ECU Vice-Chancellor Steve Chapman welcomed the latest five star ratings.

“When it comes to university rankings, teaching quality is paramount. Good teachers are able to really engage their students with the theoretical and practical knowledge they will need to get ready for the workplace of the future,” Professor Chapman said.

He said the ongoing transition to a knowledge economy meant the most successful graduates would be those who developed a broad range of professional skills.

“Employers are increasingly looking for graduates who are culturally aware, team players, flexible and adaptable, and can manage their time,” he said.

The Good Universities Guide uses the results of two annual surveys, one of Australian students on their university experience and another of recently completed graduates on their current employment.

Earlier this year ECU was named in the Times Higher Education 150 under 50, a global list of the best universities under the age of 50.
