QILT website launched

An innovative new website that compares quality indicators for learning and teaching at Australian higher education institutions was launched today.

The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching — or QILT — website helps students and their families make informed choices about their higher education options by bringing together survey data from all Australian universities about students’ experiences and graduate job outcomes.

The easy-to-use website allows students to compare institutions and study areas based on the results of thousands of surveys completed by current students and graduates. The surveys are based on a range of information, such as the satisfaction of face-to-face discussions, access to computers, graduate salaries, and employment outcomes.

With a few simple clicks, users can search for study areas and institutions of interest to them, and do side by side comparisons, including:

  • overall satisfaction of current students
  • overall satisfaction of recent graduates
  • outcomes of students moving into full-time employment after graduation and
  • the median salary received by recent graduates.

Future releases on the QILT website, developed by the Social Research Centre, will include surveys that cover the student journey right through to employment.
