USC top of the class for student experience

26 Aug 2016

The University of the Sunshine Coast is top of the class for student experience – again, according to an annual guide for Australian universities.

USC’s ratings are included in the 2017 edition of ‘The Good Universities Guide’, published today by the Good Education Group. Ratings are based on nationwide student and graduate surveys.

USC rated five out of five stars in five student experience categories: overall quality of educational experience; teaching quality; learning resources; student support; and skills development.

“Those ratings place this University among the top 20 percent of public institutions in the country,” said USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill.

“It’s the 11th year running that USC has received five stars for teaching quality, and the fifth year that we’ve received five stars for overall student satisfaction.

“We’re delighted with this national recognition, which reinforces our strategies that aim to give students of all ages and backgrounds the best possible university experience in southeast Queensland.”
