Curtin cements place among world’s top varsities

CURTIN University is now ranked first among Western Australia universities for graduate outcomes (including full-time employment and starting salary), staff qualifications, learner engagement and learning resources.

The university has been awarded multiple five-star ratings in the recently released 2021 Good Universities Guide rankings.

It was also ranked in the top band of Australian universities for undergraduate teaching quality, overall experience, learning resources, learner engagement, starting salary and skills development.

Curtin University vice-chancellor Prof John Cordery said the latest results reaffirmed the institution’s excellent reputation in teaching, learning and graduate outcomes.

“Curtin continues to outrank all other Western Australia universities in several important categories including the full-time employment rate, confirming our commitment to producing job-ready graduates.

“It’s particularly satisfying to see Curtin achieving high rankings across Western Australia and nationally in the undergraduate educational experience measures for many fields of study including medicine, architecture, business management, psychology and social work.”

He added that Curtin Medical School has been ranked top in the country for overall experience, teaching quality, learner engagement and learning resources for the second year running.

Curtin University Malaysia pro vice-chancellor president and chief executive officer Prof Simon Leunig said the “fabulous results” reflected the skill and dedication of the university’s academic and professional staff not only in Western Australia, but also across all its global campuses in Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai and Mauritius.

He highlighted that Curtin Malaysia, like its Australian parent, was also widely recognised for its practical research that is focused on solving timely, real-world problems.

In recent years, its research activity has grown significantly, helping to drive Curtin’s rapid rise in the global university rankings.

He added that Curtin Malaysia has in its own right gained recognition through its ratings in Malaysia’s SETARA, D-SETARA and MYRA rating systems for institutional excellence, academic programmes and research.

It is also one of 19 public and private universities in Malaysia granted self-accreditation status by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
