Graduate attributes

Students in UC courses acquire a body of professional and disciplinary knowledge, technical and information literacy skills and a set of appropriate professional attitudes. At the heart of these learning outcomes are the generic attributes we have identified as essential for our graduates.

Effective professional practice requires the ability to integrate course-specific and generic knowledge and the different skills and attributes.

Development of the graduate attributes takes place in all courses in ways that reflect the qualification level and type and the character of the particular discipline and professional field.

The University monitors students’ development of graduate attributes through curriculum design, mapping of course and unit learning outcomes, assessment, internal course and unit satisfaction surveys and Australia-wide surveys of university graduates.
The Graduate Attributes Policy provides detailed information regarding the University's graduate attributes.
