Macleay College has once again performed very well on a majority of indicators reported in the QILT scores released in 2019.
The data indicates Macleay performs not only much better than the national averages on all indicators of graduate satisfaction and the student experience, but also outperformed all of Australia’s public universities on most measures.
The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) are a suite of surveys commissioned by the Australian Government that cover the life cycle of a higher education student from commencement to employment. The aim of the Government in developing QILT was to demand and drive increased accountability in the Australian higher education system and deliver greater transparency about how higher education institutions perform, engage and support their students.
"Macleay... Outperformed all of Australia's public universities on most measures."
QILT surveys are the biggest education surveys of their kind in Australia. Around 194,000 undergraduate students and 89,000 postgraduate coursework students from Australian universities and non-university higher education institutions participated in the 2018 Student Experience Survey. The QILT scores refer to the percentage of respondents who rated their experience on each measure positively, with a higher percentage score meaning that more students were satisfied with their experience.
