We’re delighted to announce the release of The Good Universities Guide 2022 ratings! These ratings provide a series of insights on Australian universities, helping you in the process of deciding where to study.
A combination of resources provided by the Department of Education, Skills & Employment are used to create these ratings, as well as graduate and student experience surveys in Australia. The results show that despite the challenges of Covid-19, universities have continued to serve students at a high standard.
When choosing a university, there are a lot of things to consider. First, there is there is the characteristics of a uni — what are the teachers like, and how many students will be in a class? There’s the experience you have once you enrol – how much support you’ll receive, the quality of teaching, and how engaged you’ll be in your learning. And finally, the outcome of your studying experience – how likely you are to get a job, and much you could earn as a graduate.
There is no one university that is best for all students, since different things matter to different people. Courses and institutions differ in many ways — only you can decide which differences really matter to you. Check out the ratings that matter to you and filter further by study level (undergraduate or postgraduate) and state. Some ratings are also available to filter further by field of study.
