​UNSW awarded five stars for employment outcomes

New Delhi: UNSW Sydney has been awarded the maximum five-star rating for ‘Getting a Job’ in the latest Good Universities Guide, the only Group of Eight university to do so this year.

The Guide found that more than 76% of UNSW undergraduates find full-time employment within four months of graduating – ahead of the national average of 69%.

UNSW was one of only two metropolitan-based universities (alongside Notre Dame)

​​to achieve the five-star employment rating. Six regional universities also achieved the maximum score.
“This is a pleasing result for UNSW. The five-star rating reflects just how highly sought after our graduates are in the workforce,” said Professor Merlin Crossley, UNSW Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education).

“UNSW graduates also have some of the highest starting salaries in the country, achieving the five-star rating in six areas of study – Computing and Information systems, Creative Arts, Health Services, Law and Paralegal Studies, Science and Mathematics, and Teacher Education.”

Along with the impressive five-star rating for ‘Getting a Job’, UNSW also scored the maximum five-star rating in four other key performance areas: student retention, staff-student ratio, starting salary and student demand.

“This is another good result for UNSW, reflecting our position as a leading research and teaching-intensive university,” Professor Crossley said.

Good Universities Guide, published annually, provides detailed profiles of all Australian universities, as well as other institutions offering tertiary courses.
