Student experience a standout in survey results

The insights of participants in the Australian Graduate Survey (AGS) have sent UOW to the top of the class in the area of ‘educational experience’ for students according to the 2013 Good Universities Guide.

The results of the annual survey, a nationally joint project involving all Australian universities, saw the University outperform its much larger metropolitan counterparts, scoring a fantastic 30 stars out of a possible 30 in the six educational experience categories- (1)) Teaching quality, (2) Generic skills, (3) Graduate satisfaction, (4) Getting a job, (5) Positive graduate outcomes and (6) Graduate starting salary and securing its place as the top university in Australia for educational experience.

The survey is designed to collect information from graduates about their university experience and type of work or study being undertaken after the completion of their course.

Four lucky UOW graduates who undertook to the survey have been rewarded with iPad’s for their responses. Jenny Orr (Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies), Amanda Begley (Bachelor of Arts (Hons)), John Gaal (Bachelor of Nursing) and Steven Barker (Graduate Certificate in Management) received a new iPad as their incentive for completing the survey.

The University strongly encourages all UOW graduates to complete the survey as it is the only chance for new alumni to reflect and evaluate the entire experience at UOW. The information gathered also provides UOW with a picture of gradate employment and further study trends. This information is used to inform future and current students of the potential career paths that can be undertaken at the completion of their degree.

The University will continue to participate in the Australian Graduate Survey in the latter part of 2012 and into 2013. All mid-year graduates will be receiving emails, letters and follow up phone calls in the next 4-6 weeks and end of year graduates will be contacted in April 2013.

In order to ensure that the University can contact you, please update your contact details online here. UOW will be offering a range of prizes for lucky graduates who respond.
