New 'Quality Indicators' show CQUni shines in jobs, salaries and support

Published:22 September 2015

The Federal Government's new Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) website shows how CQUniversity shines in providing study support and enabling good graduate employment and salary outcomes.

The website enables comparison of CQUniversity ratings against major university alliances, including the Group of Eight (Go8) coalition of leading Australian universities and the Australian Technology Network (ATN) collaborative group of five major universities.

Comparisons reveal:

- CQUni's full-time employment of graduates rate higher than all Go8s

- CQUni's study support rated higher than all Go8s

- CQUni's full-time employment of graduates rate higher than all ATNs

- CQUn's median salary for graduates higher than all ATNs

- CQUni's study support rated higher than all ATNs

Comparisons of individual study areas reveal:

- In Architecture & Building, CQUni had the highest full-time graduate employment rate (95.3%) and median salary ($69,000) of ALL universities

- In Education, CQUni and JCU had the joint second highest full-time graduate employment rate of  86.8% (only beaten by QUT with 86.9%).

- In Engineering, CQUni was in the Top 5 for full-time graduate employment and in the Top 3 for median salaries, nationally.

- In Health Services & Support, CQUni was in the Top 4  for full-time graduate employment and median salaries, nationally.

- In Computing & Information Systems, CQUni (tied with USC) was in the Top 4 for full-time graduate employment and Top 2 for median salaries, nationally.

The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching website at http://www.qilt.edu.au/ is independent and an excellent site for unbiased reporting. It provides prospective students with relevant and transparent information about Australian universities from the perspective of recent students and graduates.
