Decade of five-star successes for UOW

The stars keep on shining for the University of Wollongong (UOW) as far as the 2010 Good Universities Guide is concerned – with UOW now reaching a continuous decade of five-star successes in the key categories of “Getting a Job”, “Positive Graduate Outcomes” and “Graduate Starting Salary”.

The latest guide, officially out tomorrow (11 August), will show that UOW has retained all its five-star standing status that it achieved last year.

This includes Wollongong standing alongside seven of the so-called metropolitan-based ‘Group of Eight’ universities to record the highest possible five-star ratings as a research-intensive university which marks the third successive year UOW has achieved five stars in this critical category.

The official release of the guide tonight will reaffirm UOW’s five-star standing status in the following major indicators:

    • Research intensivity

    • The educational experience (generic skills)

    • The educational experience (graduate satisfaction)

    • Graduate starting salary

    • Getting a Job and

    • Positive Graduate Outcomes

Under the Guide’s ranking system, only the top 20 per cent of universities can be awarded a five-star rating in any one category.

The guide’s authors highlighted how UOW had received “above average results” across a range of areas.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wollongong, Professor Gerard Sutton, said the fact that UOW has been repeatedly achieving these five-star successes over the years was extremely gratifying.

“Australian and overseas students scrutinising this guide will see just how UOW is among the elite research and teaching universities in Australia,” he said.

The Good Universities Guide draws its information from the Federal Government’s Department of Education, Science and Training as well as the results of the national Graduate Destination Surveys.
