5 Star Experience

This page is a snapshot of recent university rankings, both nationally and internationally. It includes ratings from recent graduate surveys and other international quality measures.

2018 Good Universities Guide

Every year, university graduates around Australia are surveyed about their university experience,including factors impacting the quality of their university experience and some post-university outcomes.

The resulting scores are translated into university star ratings and these are published in the Good Universities Guide.

ECU graduates have again given us a 5-star rating for teaching quality. This rating has now been achieved for 11 years in a row.

This makes ECU one of just two public universities – and the only in Western Australia – to have achieved such a consistently high endorsement for teaching quality.

A 5-star rating has also been awarded this year for the median salary of ECU graduates. This is based on the starting salary for new domestic graduates under age 25, and in their first full-time job.
