Griffith lands amongst five-star ratings in Good Universities Guide

The most recent report from The Good Universities Guide shows a high percentage of students were happy with their education at Griffith University, ranking well above the national average for overall student experience.

Griffith remains a strong presence in the social equity space, supporting a high percentage (42 per cent) of ‘first in family’ students.

Deputy Vice Chancellor (Education), Shaun Ewen, says the university rankings reflect Griffith’s core values.

Deputy Vice Chancellor (Education) Professor Shaun Ewen said the results recognised Griffith’s commitment to providing exceptional learning experiences to its students.

“The pandemic disrupted many student experiences at universities, and we have been working hard to find new and improved ways of engaging with students,” Professor Ewen said.

“It is great to see our results around teaching quality, student support and first-generation access continue to be exceptional and reflective of our Griffith values.”

The university sustains itself as a high performer in the area of skills development, which sees students exposed to contemporary industry knowledge and skill-stretching placement opportunities.

Sharing their industry expertise are some of Australia’s most highly qualified academics, Griffith ranking fifth overall in staff qualifications.

This five-star achievement recognises the proportion of academics who hold a PhD or doctorate at the university.

Providing industry and mentoring experiences is a key priority for Griffith to strengthen employability beyond education, with work-integrated learning available in a variety of academic areas from health and law to film and not-for-profit community-services.

Griffith is committed to ensuring diversity and accessibility for all our students and is a signatory to the United Nation’s Framework of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
