Murdoch scores top rating for Good Universities Guide

Murdoch University once again achieved the top (five-star) rating for graduate satisfaction with the release of the 2009 Good Universities Guide.

Murdoch is the only university in Australia to achieve this honour for an extraordinary 13 times in 14 years, and was singled out for praise by the Good Universities Guide for its consistent performance in this field.

Murdoch also received five stars for teaching quality and achieved above average results in employment prospects, entry flexibility, staff to student ratios and Indigenous participation.

Murdoch University Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) Professor Jan Thomas said she was delighted at Murdoch’s improved rating in employment prospects and entry flexibility.

“Murdoch graduates are clearly more desirable to employers than most graduates in Western Australia,” Professor Thomas said.

“Their cutting edge professional skills and rich cross-disciplinary abilities and attitudes are preparing them well to work and live in a complex world.

“A long term strategy to provide rich and supportive learning environments, coupled with relevant and innovative degrees taught by dedicated academics has proven successful.

“To achieve these results while ensuring access to students with a wide range of backgrounds, confirms Murdoch’s long term contribution to social inclusion and building social capital for the Western Australian community”.

The independent guide conducts an annual comparison of Australia’s 39 universities and 45 private education providers, examining how they rate on delivering quality education and skills to students.

The data is collected from the Commonwealth Department of Education, Science and Training as well as National Graduate Destination Surveys.
