The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) for 2017 have again placed Macleay well above the national average for overall quality of educational experience.
Data captured below is from qilt.edu.au, May 2018.
Why does QILT matter?
QILT results are based on the experiences of real students and graduates and can help you make informed decisions about your best study options. The results are based on thousands of surveys completed each year by students across Australia.
What is the Macleay difference?
Here at Macleay, we prioritise real-world experience for our students. Our expert staff, leaders in the industry, develop innovative courses with a focus on project-based learning and positive education. Macleay received a rating of 90.5% for teaching quality in the 2017 QILT results. This is well above the national average of 80.9%.
We know students
Macleay students are names, not numbers. With class sizes capped at 25 students, we experience high levels of engagement and participation. All lecturers know their students on a first name basis and offer individualised support to each student. So, it’s no surprise that Macleay scored highly in the QILT results around engagement and support. With a score of 84.9% for learner engagement, Macleay was well above the industry average of 63.1%. Our result of 86.5% for student support was significantly higher than the national average of 72.2%.
We connect with industry
Every Macleay student undertakes an internship as part of their course. It’s something that really sets us apart. The internship is a vital aspect of study here at Macleay, connecting our students to the industries in which they hope to work. The opportunity to work on live industry briefs and meet leaders in their industry is invaluable and the positive outcomes are clear in the QILT results. Macleay received 91.1% for skill development, compared with the national average of 81%.
Your future is bright
We are proud of our outstanding QILT results for educational experience and excited for the future. We will continue to implement leading practises in higher education throughout 2018 and beyond.
