Wednesday, 16 August 2006

The University of Adelaide continues to be one of Australia's leading universities, with top marks for its staff-student ratio and research, according to the latest Good Universities Guide.

The 2007 edition of the Good Universities Guide shows that Adelaide scored the maximum five stars for staff-student ratios, research grants and research intensivity.

Adelaide scored an excellent four stars for positive graduate outcomes, staff qualifications, student demand and international enrolments.

The University also fared well for graduates getting a job and cultural diversity.

"The picture presented of the University of Adelaide by the 2007 Good Universities Guide is an extremely positive one," says the University's Vice-Chancellor, Professor James McWha.

"It shows that this university has a vibrant campus life, with excellent graduate outcomes, one of the highest staff-student ratios in Australia, and an outstanding commitment to research," he says.

"The Guide is further proof that the University of Adelaide makes a unique contribution to the State."

Professor McWha says the University is working hard to meet its ambition to be among the top universities for learning and teaching.

"We're pleased to report that we've already made a significant step in that direction with the greatest increase in overall student satisfaction of any university in Australia, reported by this year's Course Experience and Graduate Destination Survey results."
