Education Graduates at Prize Giving Ceremony

The state’s most employable graduates

Tuesday, 10 June 2014

The Faculty of Education has been ranked 33rd in the world and 7th in Australia according to this year’s QS World University Rankings by Subject. The result recognises the commitment the Faculty’s staff and students have for high-quality education, and the Faculty’s good reputation not just in Australia but also internationally.  Indeed, what is likely to be of great interest to current and prospective students alike is the Faculty’s high ‘employer reputation’.
