In Summary

Swinburne has once again been recognised by The Good Universities Guide 2016 for providing top-quality, five star education.

The five-star rating is the highest rating awarded by the guide, which ranks and rates 39 institutions across Australia based on access and equity, educational experience and graduate outcomes.

In the 2016 edition, Swinburne has been given a five star rating for overall graduate satisfaction, staff-student ratios and generic skills.

The university also increased its rating for student numbers, student retention and research grants while maintaining its four-star rating for teaching quality.

Swinburne University of Technology’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Linda Kristjanson, says the five star satisfaction rating reflects the high-quality experience offered to Swinburne students.

“We offer excellent teaching and opportunities to engage with industry to make sure students gain the professional skills they need for the future.”

Swinburne has recently launched an updated program of Work Integrated Learning opportunities, to be offered to all undergraduate students starting in 2016.

“Swinburne has established a strong reputation for providing practical work experiences to students for more than fifty years. The new program of Work Integrated Learning options will provide greater access and clarity to our students,” Professor Kristjanson says.

Last week, the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities again rated Swinburne in the top 400 universities in the world and in the top 100 in the field of physics.

The Good Universities Guide provides an annual overview of universities and private higher education providers in Australia, rating universities in a number of important categories.
