QILT SES 2021

UBSS is honoured to have been ranked as the #1 Business School in the Sydney CBD for both Teaching Quality and Learner Engagement amongst undergraduate students.

The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) are a suite of government-endorsed surveys for higher education which cover the student life cycle from commencement to employment. QILT provides robust, nationally consistent performance data for Australian higher education, helping drive quality improvements.

At UBSS, we are proud to participate in the QILT Student Experience Survey (SES) each year in order to provide transparency to aspiring professionals, students and entrepreneurs about the high standards of our institution and business education programs.

The UBSS QILT SES for 2020, which were released in 2021, have now been made available. UBSS is honoured to have been ranked as the #1 Business School in the Sydney CBD for both ‘Teaching Quality’ and ‘Learner Engagement’ amongst undergraduate students.

From the perspective of postgraduate students, UBSS exceeds the national average ranking in every aspect of the QILT SES. Our institution is ranked in the top 4 providers in the Sydney CBD for ‘Student Support’ and in the top 5 providers in the Sydney CBD for ‘Positive Experience’.

UBSS also outranks many of the public universities in Sydney in ‘Skills Development’, ‘Teaching Quality’ and ‘Learner Engagement’ amongst postgraduate students.

When it comes to comparing UBSS to other independent providers, UBSS continues to rank within the top 3 or 4 providers, despite the competition being much tighter. This is evidence that the level of education that independent providers can offer is of a much higher calibre and quality than that of public universities.

At UBSS, we take the QILT SES and use them to improve our student’s experience while studying with us. We want you to feel confident that you are receiving practical, high-quality education and that we are actively helping you on your path to business success.

QILT / Independent Higher Education Australia (IHEA)

UBSS is a proud member of IHEA - the peak body representing independent higher education providers in Australia - and we continue to use our membership to ensure that the quality of education our entrepreneurial students receive at UBSS is of a high standard.

This is what the CEO of IHEA, Simon Finn, had to say about UBSS.

“UBSS’ focus on best practice and ongoing quality assurance is demonstrated through the school’s commitment to benchmarking. UBSS leads the way among our membership – the school participates in all IHEA benchmarking projects, hosts workshops on campus and their academic leaders directly engage with the benchmarking quality across the independent education sector. The results of this leadership are reflected in the federal government’s QILT Student Experience Survey with UBSS students rating the school highly on a range of measures including Teaching Quality, Learner Engagement, Skills Development and Student Support.”

- Simon Finn, CEO of Independent Higher Education Australia (IHEA)

At UBSS, we are extremely proud to receive this endorsement from the CEO of IHEA. Along with the QILT Student Experience Survey, this endorsement is a testament to our school’s commitment to our students and the aspiring business professionals of Australia.

Past UBSS QILT SES

UBSS participates each year in the QILT Student Experience Survey (SES) in order for us to maintain our high standards and ensure our entrepreneurial students are receiving the best Australian education to help them succeed in the global business world.

What’s most evident throughout the post QILT SES is that UBSS continues to exceed the national average year on year in almost every aspect of both the undergraduate and postgraduate surveys.

UBSS regularly outperforms public universities in all areas and ranks in the top 2 or 3 schools each year when compared to other independent higher education providers.

Our school also scores consistently well in undergraduate surveys against other independent providers in areas such as ‘Student Experience’, ‘Student Support’, ‘Skills Development’ and ‘Teaching Quality’.

In postgraduate SES, UBSS has been ranked in the top 5 business schools in Australia for ‘Learner Engagement’ – every year for the past few years. We also continue to rank highly against other independent providers in the area of ‘Positive Student Experience’.

At UBSS, we are proud of our achievements in the QILT Student Experience Survey, and we use the SES each year as a way to help us better our education standards at our school so that we can continue to help the aspiring entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

At UBSS, we have always participated in the annual QILT Student Experience Survey (SES), as it provides us with a complete overview of the quality of our education programs at both an undergraduate and postgraduate level.

UBSS takes the results of the QILT Student Experience Survey and uses them to further improve our education quality, teaching standards, and student experience at our school, so that we continue to offer aspiring entrepreneurs the best opportunities to succeed and help them achieve high levels of success in their career endeavours.

Each year, the QILT SES have shown that, as an independent higher education provider, UBSS has confidently outperformed the national average, as well as other well-established universities in a number of the survey criteria.

In particular, UBSS regularly achieves high scores in the areas of ‘Overall Positive Student Experience’ and ‘Teaching Quality’, consistently outranking both public universities and other independent higher education providers across the city and Australia.

These results alone are a testament to the consistent level of effort that is applied at UBSS by our staff and management to ensure that our students are receiving the best possible education in order to achieve the results they desire in the business world.
