Gladstone CQU campus gets five star rating
CENTRAL Queensland Universi- ty (CQU) Gladstone campus aca- demic services have been rated five star.
Head of CQU Gladstone cam- pus Associate Professor Bob Prater was elated by the univer-sity's overall top rating of five stars for graduate outcomes by the latest Good Universities Guide.
'It's good to get that five star for the campus,' Mr Prater said.
The graduate outcomes score was based on the university's above average rating for gradu- ate starting salaries and job success.
The Gladstone and Mackay CQU campuses were also rated as five star for academic services, something Mr Prater said was a tribute to the staff who strived to top recent four star ratings in the field.
Mr Prater said the upgrade in academic services was due to the staff wanting to see the students exceed, and giving them extra at- tention.
'Optimism is a program that helps students improve their re- sults with additional support, and we also have a great mentor-ing program,' Mr Prater said.
The campus plans to encour-age more students to participate in the extra workshops for better outcomes.
