FIVE-STARS have been awarded to the University of New England by the 2017 Good Universities Guide for student experience and graduate outcomes.
The data, based on graduate outcomes and the results of the Student Experience survey and Graduate Destination Survey, ranks UNE in the top 20 per cent of all Australian universities.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Annabelle Duncan said that the results can be credited to the dedication of campus staff.
“We work hard to provide our students with the best possible learning environments regardless of their location,” she said.
“I specifically want to highlight the efforts of our various student support teams, including colleges, in providing both academic support and pastoral care to our students. Their efforts contributed significantly to our outstanding results.”
“Together with other Regional Universities Network (RUN) members we are working on projects to better understand, identify and address organisational, academic, environmental and social factors that can impact on students’ studies.”
The results follow with positive reviews from student’s about their on-campus experiences.
First year medical student Matea Deminkovic from UNE’s Joint Medical Program said her experience has exceeded her expectations for a rural university.
“It’s more interactive… our cohort is a lot smaller than it would be in a city so you can talk to the lecturers more and you get to know everyone,” she said.
