Rankings and Awards

As Kaplan Business School is not a research institution, we do not appear in the global university rankings tables such as QS and Times Higher Education. Instead, we devote all our resources to what matters most for students:

  • Quality of Teaching
  • Student Support
  • Learner Engagement and
  • Graduate Outcomes and Employability.

In these key student-focused areas, Kaplan Business School is highly ranked, and our success has been acknowledged in several Australian and global awards.

The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) are a suite of national higher education surveys endorsed by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment. They are the most comprehensive education surveys in Australia, covering the student life cycle from commencement to employment.

All 41 universities and many higher education institutions participate each year. The largest survey in the suite - the Student Experience Survey (SES) - is completed by hundreds of thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students.

International students rate our Quality of Entire Educational Experience, Teaching Quality and Student Support higher than every public university in Australia.
