DO SOMETHING THAT MATTERS
The Australian Government’s latest Student Experience Survey (SES) findings place the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP) as a leading institution in student satisfaction outcomes.
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.
The 2019 QILT SES surveyed approximately 180,000 undergraduate students and 83,000 postgraduate coursework students from Australian universities and non-university higher education institutions (NUHEIs).
Exceeding national averages
ACAP scored higher than the national average for four of the Undergraduate survey’s six indicators, with four results revealing satisfaction levels of between 80 and 90 per cent.
ACAP’s highest scores were in the Undergraduate categories ‘Quality of Entire Educational Experience’ (80.3%), ‘Teaching Quality’ (83.4%) ‘Skills Development’ (85.9%) and ‘Learning Resources’ (82.1%).
ACAP’s Undergraduate ‘Quality of Entire Educational Experience’ ranked above the national average, with students giving an 80.3% overall positive rating against a national average of (78%).
Commitment to student satisfaction
General Manager of ACAP, George Garrop, said that the results were a reflection of ACAP’s ongoing commitment to enriching student experience.
“We are delighted to be placed amongst Australia’s elite educational institutions and this news demonstrates why ACAP is an increasingly attractive first choice for those who want to make a career out of understanding human behaviour.
“This is a true reflection of our commitment to student satisfaction, recognising the hard work of our staff who have contributed in so many ways to this excellent result.
“I am especially pleased with our high satisfaction rating in Skills Development. This result is a testament to our goal of creating work-ready, confident graduates who are at the forefront of mental health practice.”
