The University of Southern Queensland has again led the way for employment outcomes and graduate salaries in Australia.

The Good Universities Guide 2022 rankings, released this week, show the University’s graduates have the highest starting pay in Australia with a median starting salary of $70,000. The University of Southern Queensland also received a five-star rating for full-time graduate employment. University of Southern Queensland Vice-Chancellor Professor Geraldine Mackenzie said the latest results highlighted the University’s ongoing commitment to quality education and excellent career outcomes.

“Our University has consistently been recognised for its excellence in undergraduate career success, and these rankings confirm our proven track record,” Professor Mackenzie said. “Our number one priority will always be our students and they are setting a national best when it comes to graduate starting salaries and employment outcomes.”

The 2022 guide rankings were formulated from nationwide student and graduate surveys and national higher education data, awarding five-star ratings to the top 20 percent of universities in each category.“These rankings show comprehensive and well-rounded results for the University from employment outcomes, learning resources and student support to other areas of great importance such as social equity and first-in-family students,” Professor Mackenzie said. “This demonstrates that despite the disruptions caused by COVID-19, the University of Southern Queensland was consistent and dependable in providing students with a positive educational experience with strong graduate outcomes.”

Founded in 1967, the University of Southern Queensland has expanded to three campuses in south Queensland, offering 115 disciplines across 14 fields of study, in person and online.
