CHARLES Sturt University (CSU) - which has a local campus on the Mid North Coast - has maintained its ranking as Australia's leading university for full-time graduate employment rates.
The latest Good Universities Guide (GUG) figures, released this week, reveals CSU continues to lead the way for the rates of undergraduate employment, with 86 per cent of graduates finding full-time employment within four months.
The university also ranked in the top five Australian universities for postgraduate employment, teaching quality, educational experience and starting salaries.
The GUG will publish that CSU achieved nation-leading outcomes in the study areas of agriculture, environmental studies, business and management, computing, communications, humanities, law, nursing, psychology, social work and veterinary science.
In June, stage 2B of CSU Port Macquarie campus' $66 million development was unveiled by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
The $21 million campus addition includes a suite of world-class environmentally sustainable platform learning and teaching spaces; the Port Macquarie International Education Centre; a NSW Emergency Services training room; an Innovation Hub and co-working spaces, student support and amenity services facilities.
Charles Sturt Interim Vice-Chancellor Professor John Germov was delighted to again see CSU at the top of the higher education sector for graduate employment rates, saying it was a testament to the university's commitment to produce career-ready graduates.
"Charles Sturt University strives to ensure we develop graduates with the skills and knowledge to thrive in their chosen careers," Prof Germov said.
"These results are a testament to the quality of the teaching we deliver and the strength of the relationships the university has with industry which enable our students to engage in valuable practical work experience over the course of their studies.
"Charles Sturt University has a superb record in graduate employment outcomes, one which our students value and which we are justifiably proud of."
