The University of Notre Dame Australia received the highest ratings in excellence in several different areas from the Good Universities Guide 2014. It is the 7th consecutive year Notre Dame Australia has received 5 Stars in ‘Teaching Quality,’ ‘Overall Graduate Satisfaction,’ and ‘Generic Skill.’ In 2014 it also received 5 Stars for ‘Staff-to-Student Ratio’.

“We are delighted by this year’s results,” Professor Celia Hammond, vice chancellor of the university said. “As a university, we strive to provide each student with an excellent education that enriches the whole person. We believe these results reflect our commitment to value each student as an individual.”

The Good Universities Guide is an independent survey that rates the performance of Australian universities on a broad range of criteria, to evaluate the educational experiences and results of a university’s graduates. The ratings for the majority of categories in which Notre Dame received 5 Stars are based on responses by the school’s graduates to the Annual Graduate Survey. To receive five stars in any area, Notre Dame graduates had to rate their courses higher than 80 percent of graduates in similar fields from other higher education institutions.

In addition to its academic programs, Notre Dame offers an ‘Experience the World’ program which gives students the opportunity to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others through study tours and working with Caritas Australia in developing nations, or participating in the life of a remote Kimberley community. The university’s ‘Study Abroad Program’ also enables students to broaden their horizons by undertaking semester long programs with universities in Asia, Europe and the United States.

The University of Notre Dame Australia was founded through an Act of the Parliament of Western Australia in December 1989. It currently has more than 11,000 students enrolled on its three campuses, in Fremantle and Broome in Western Australia, and in Sydney, NSW.
