The 2019 QILT national survey has been released and Excelsia College received excellent results across the board, registering scores higher than the national average in nearly all metrics of student experience.
The QILT survey (Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching) is Australia’s largest survey of higher education students nationwide. The report outlines student satisfaction data in institutions across Australia. It allows students to compare study experience and employment data from 108 higher education institutions across Australia.
How do we compare nationwide?
Excelsia’s 2019 results see the College become one of the top 25 higher education providers nationwide with improved results across the board. This builds on the College’s past success and highlights a commitment to providing a high-quality experience for students and provision of student satisfaction.
How do we compare against universities?
In the survey now published on QILT, Excelsia outperformed 41 of the 42 universities in Teaching Quality for undergraduate and postgraduate courses with an overall student satisfaction rating of 91.7% and 89.6% respectively.
Findings among the survey’s undergraduate students also put Excelsia above most universities for Learner Engagement with a rating of 77.6%, above the national average of 63.4%, and Student Support, with a rating of 84.5%, above the national average of 73.7%. The results reinforce how highly students and graduates rate their experience at Excelsia, where a strong emphasis is placed on student satisfaction and experiential learning.
