University consolidates top ranking

Notre Dame University Australia has further consolidated its position in the top-rated universities nationwide with a record eight, five-star ratings from the influential The Good Universities Guide 2018.

Announced today (Monday 28 August 2017), Notre Dame achieved five-star ratings in eight of the Guide’s 13 categories:

  • ‘Overall Experience’
  • ‘Teaching Quality’
  • ‘Learner Engagement’
  • ‘Student Support’
  • ‘Skills Development’
  • ‘Graduate Employment’
  • ‘Median Graduate Salary’
  • ‘Student Retention’

The University, which has Campuses in Fremantle, Broome and Sydney, has received the top five-star ratings in The Good Universities Guide for the 11th consecutive year.

The Good Universities Guide (GUG) bases its ratings on the performance of all Australian universities using a broad range of indicators from Federal Government-led surveys which track data collected from both students and graduates on their educational experience and outcomes, including results from the Quality Indicators for Learning & Teaching website (

To achieve a five-star rating in any category, a university has to score in the top 20 per cent all higher education institutions Australia-wide.

Professor Celia Hammond, Vice Chancellor, Notre Dame University Australia, said the University was delighted that students not only value their Notre Dame experience highly but, as a result of the university’s unique approach to tertiary education graduates enjoy high rates of employment in challenging market conditions.

“It’s truly satisfying to see that our commitment to real-world education and a personalised learning environment resonates not only with our students, but also with graduates and prospective employers, as the five-star results indicate,” Professor Hammond said.

“We have always sought to educate the whole person, to provide an environment where students have the opportunity to develop the theoretical knowledge and technical skills they need to pursue their chosen professions that can also be of benefit to their personal lives.”
