The Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP) continues to punch above its weight in the Australian Government’s latest Student Experience Survey (SES) – scoring 83.0% for Overall Quality of Education Experience, against a national average of 79%.
The SES is part of the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) report, an independent annual survey undertaken by the federal Department of Education and Training.
For the last two years of the survey, ACAP has achieved student satisfaction outcomes above the National, University, and Non-University Higher Education Institute (NUHEI) averages in the following areas: *
- Overall Quality of Educational Experience = 83% (national average is 79%)
- Teaching Quality = 85.2% (national average is 80.9%)
- Skills Development = 85.3% (national average is 81%)
- Student Support = 79.4% (national average is 73.1%)
ACAP also considerably improved its results in the Learning Resources category in this year’s Report – achieving a rating of 85.7% against a national average of 83.9%.
General Manager of ACAP, George Garrop said that the figures spoke for themselves.
“I am very pleased to see that these results reflect our commitment as an institution to providing the best possible study experience for our students,” he said.
“As an institution we believe that academic excellence goes hand-in-hand with our students feeling included, supported and uplifted during their educational journey.
“I am very pleased to see that these figures confirm our core values and I congratulate our staff on the terrific results in the latest survey.”
The results come after a period of review and improvement in College operations, focussed on the student experience and student success.
