Creating exceptional student experiences to get top spot

RMIT has ranked as the number one Victorian University for student engagement in the 2020 Good Universities Guide.

The University achieved a five-star rating for the key areas of Learner Engagement and Staff Qualifications for the fourth consecutive year.

The Good Universities Guide has been published annually since 1992, comparing performance of Australian universities and higher education providers to inform potential students about degree programs at a national level. The ratings have been based on a student experience survey for the past few years.

Professor Belinda Tynan, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education and Vice-President, said the results highlight RMIT’s strong focus on giving students life changing experiences that will set them up for success in life and work.

“We are delighted that our students continue to show such a high level of engagement and that we attract quality staff who are committed to giving our students fabulous educational experiences,” she said.

“From embedding work integrated learning and micro-credentials into our courses through strong connections with industry, to mentoring programs, global opportunities and providing numerous pathways to learning, our students have outstanding support to achieve their future aspirations and goals.

“RMIT also offers fantastic opportunities for students to connect with their peers and enjoy being part of our rich and diverse student community through many sporting and club activities across our campuses.”

Across the University, 10 fields of study gained five-star ratings for different criteria including learning engagement, teaching quality, skills development, overall quality of educational experience and full-time employment:

  • Humanities, Cultural and Social Sciences
  • Architecture and Building
  • Business and Management
  • Communications
  • Engineering
  • Health Services and Support
  • Agricultural and Environmental Studies
  • Nursing
  • Science and Mathematics
  • Teacher Education

This latest recognition follows outstanding results for RMIT on the global stage. The University was ranked 77th globally and remains eighth in Australia for the QS Graduate Employability Rankings this year.

RMIT also climbed in the global QS World University Rankings, placing 238th overall, 222nd on academic reputation and 117th on employer reputation.
