UB excels again in Good Universities Guide

Posted: Tuesday 27 August 2013

The Federation University Australia has been awarded the maximum rating of five stars for teaching quality for the fifth year in a row.

The 2014 Good Universities Guide also awarded the University a further four stars for each of the following – overall satisfaction, retention rating, socio-economic equity, proportion of TAFE and proportion of school leavers.

Three stars also were awarded for positive outcomes and cultural diversity.

“As one of the nation’s leading regional universities, the Federation University Australia is delighted with our continually strong ratings in The Good Universities Guide,” Professor Todd Walker, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Quality), said.

“We are the only Victorian university to have scored five stars for teaching quality five years in a row. The five stars means graduates rated the teaching quality of their courses at UB higher than graduates in similar fields from 80 per cent of other institutions.

“Pending final approval, we also are due to become Federation University Australia on 1 January. This will see a new, expanded regional university incorporating the current Gippsland Campus of Monash University.”

The Good Universities Guide provides independent five-star performance ratings of Australian undergraduate courses and their providers.

These ratings compare graduates’ educational experiences while studying and their outcomes shortly after graduation.
