Each year Hobson’s compiles the Good Universities Guide – extensive data on each of Australia’s universities to indicate where they stand in various categories relating to students experience, staff qualifications, research, student-to-staff ratios, and student retention.

The data is collected based upon wide-ranging surveys and interviews as well as information publicly released by universities and allow students to make an informed choice when comparing universities across Australia.
