  1. Median ATAR for enrolled students, based on both Commonwealth Supported Place and international onshore Year 12 students.
  2. 2016 student enrolments, award completions and research performance indicators are estimates.
  3. Staff FTE includes continuing, fixed-term and casual staff.
  4. Employees correctly included in workforce data collections.
  5. Amounts represent University financial results excluding subsidiaries.
  6. Underlying operating result represents University’s accounting surplus less net discretionary investment income, infrastructure grants and endowment receipts.
  7. While the University continues to collect data on publications, its removal from the HERDC and RBG allocation formulae likely impacts quality of data captured through the University’s publication system. It is expected that the breadth of the publication collection will increase as the University prepares for the ERA 2018 submission.
