Graduate Qualities

The University's commitment to graduate qualities reflects a world-wide movement within educational institutions such as universities.  There is a deliberate focus on the development of particular student outcomes through educational programs.

A number of different terms are used to refer to these outcomes including graduate qualities, graduate outcomes, graduate attributes, generic qualities and transferable key skills.

The University of South Australia has adopted as institutional policy a statement of seven graduate qualities as the outcomes it seeks for its graduates.
