Our graduates: Five stars for getting a job

Griffith University has received a five-star rating for excellence, including its graduates’ employability, from the prestigious QS Stars rating.

The international rating looks at a range of criteria in its assessment of universities.

One of the key indicators is Employability of graduates which received a five-star rating, as did Griffith’s approach to Innovation, its Access and its Law School, giving it the maximum ranking overall.

“The QS Intelligence Unit has, through rigorous and independent data collection and analysis of performance metrics as set out in the QS Stars methodology, rated Griffith University as a five-star institution,” the citation reads.

Griffith graduates go on to become doctors, dentists, physiotherapists, lawyers, teachers, scientists, engineers, designers, architects, accountants, stockbrokers, artists, musicians and more.

The QS Stars is separate to the QS World Rankings of universities which, along with the Academic Rankings of World Universities places Griffith in the top 400 institutions globally.

The Australian Good Universities Guide is also released this week, giving Griffith graduates three stars for finding fulltime employment.

The Guide is also recognition of Griffith’s continuing pursuit of teaching excellence, rating the education experience at Griffith higher than ever before. This was evident when more than 110 teachers were honoured this year with Griffith Teaching Excellence awards after being nominated by their students.
