Brisbane-based private higher education provider Christian Heritage College (CHC) continues to rank strongly against many of its large university competitors in national student ratings compiled and released by the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training.

Data on the Department’s Quality Indicators of Learning and Teaching website show CHC to perform well above the national average in terms of students’ perceptions of teaching quality, student support and graduate employment.

CHC has topped the state in “Overall Experience” with current students rating CHC as 91.1%, well above the national average of 79.8% and ahead of the next highest institution, Bond University, on 90.2%.

Teaching Quality (93.6%) also ranked above the national average (81.5%) as did Student Support (90.1% over 72.0% (national average)).

CHC graduates also rate their university experience highly with an overall satisfaction level of 92.5% against its closest competitor (89.5%) and a national average of 80.0%.

Tellingly, 84.1% of CHC’s graduates were in full-time employment, with the national average of 70.6% and leading Queensland universities on 72% (QUT) and 73.3% (University of Queensland).

CHC President, Dr Jeannie Trudel, is encouraged by the strong ratings.

“We are delighted to be rated so favourably alongside the large public providers, so that students have genuine data to make decisions about their institution of choice,” said Dr Trudel.

“Through small class sizes and personal attention by our dedicated staff, CHC has always had a focus on the needs and outcomes of the students.”

“Private providers like CHC bring diversity to higher education by providing a genuine alternative for both school-leavers and mature-age students seeking to advance their skills and employment outcomes.”
