STUDENTS have given the University of New England top marks for student experience, overall satisfaction and teaching quality.
In the 2015 latest national Good Universities Guide released last week, UNE was given five stars for each of these categories – the highest possible rating as voted by students.
Vice-chancellor Annabelle Duncan welcomed the results and commended the work of each and every staff member in upholding the university’s long-standing reputation for excellence in these areas.
“To be awarded top marks in these important categories yet again is a truly exceptional achievement,” Professor Duncan said.
“Year after year, students have given UNE top marks for their university experience, and there really can be no greater indication of the value of their time at UNE.
“These results speak for on-campus and external students alike, which tells us that regardless of their mode of study, students are benefiting from excellent teaching, student support, engagement, learning materials, and delivery methods.”
A five-star rating in the three categories meant that UNE students rated their experiences better than students from 80 per cent of other universities.
UNE has also been awarded five stars for socio-economic equity, a well-deserved nod to the university’s commitment to inclusiveness.
Each year Hobsons compiles extensive data on each of Australia’s universities to indicate where they stand in various categories relating to student experience, quality and quantity of staff, student demographics, international students and university income.
The data collected is based upon extensive surveys and interviews, as well as information publicly released by universities.
