Students continue to rate their undergraduate experience at Flinders University as above the national average on every measure.
The welcome news is contained in the 2018 Student Experience Survey (SES) released by the federal government on the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) website.
Student Experience was assessed across six categories of overall quality of educational experience, teaching quality, learner engagement, learning resources, student support, and skills development, with Flinders exceeding the national average in all categories for its undergraduates.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students) Professor Clare Pollock says the findings underscore Flinders’ commitment to its students’ needs.
“Our student-centred ethos and paramount focus on student success is positively reflected in these results.” Professor Pollock says.
“Our overall performance is consistent with previous years and has been highlighted in the latest Good Universities Guide assessments. It establishes a solid foundation for future performance improvements as our investment in student experience delivers dividends. From our additional $100m 5-year investment in education, new teaching specialists, and cutting edge infrastructure to our unique Innovation and Enterprise offerings that are available to all students in all courses, we’re constantly improving the Flinders experience.
“Our latest student satisfaction results follows on from data released earlier this year which showed a strengthening in job prospects for both our undergraduate and postgraduate students, testament to our focus on supporting enterprising, highly employable graduates equipped with critical thinking skills” she says.
“Our strategic plan Making a Difference – The 2025 Agenda has at its heart a focus on our people. In it we pledged to engage students as partners in the co-creation of a learning experience that inspires achievement, and we are seeing this reflected in these results” Professor Pollock says.
