Graduate Attributes

Regardless of what specific program you enrol in, Sydney Institute of Higher Education’s vision for all its graduates is to complete their study has developed a specific set of graduate attributes.

The acquisition of deep disciplinary knowledge lies at the core of the SI learning journey. It is on this foundation and in this context that the other attributes that mark out a graduate of an SI undergraduate degree program are developed.

The work and social environment into which SI graduates will emerge subsequent to completion of their programs will be defined by ambiguity and complexity. It is therefore of fundamental importance that over the period of their studies, SI students develop the capacity to engage with stimulus material not merely as recipients of information and knowledge but through a rigorous, evaluative frame of reference. This enables SI students not only to understand their chosen discipline as it is but to contribute to the formulation of what it may become.

It is critical that throughout the program of their studies, SI students systematically develop and can consistently demonstrate the capacity to deploy the tools embedded through their acquisition of disciplinary knowledge towards the resolution of a range of pertinent problem sets.

The nature of the professional settings for which SI is preparing its graduates dictates that they accumulate experience and develop competency in techniques for effective collaboration. This is critical not only from the point of view of their capacity to resolve problems more effectively by drawing upon the complementary skills and ideas of others but also from the point of view of their potential for future leadership responsibilities.

In order to effectively contribute in a professional context, Sydney Institute of Higher Education graduates will exhibit a capacity to communicate in the written form and to competently deliver oral presentations. It is a core tenet of Sydney Institute of Higher Education, however, that it is just as important that students learn to listen well as to write and speak. This aids critical reasoning, analysis and problem solving and the capacity to effectively collaborate and is therefore central to the achievement of the attributes of a Sydney Institute of Higher Education graduate.

It is critical that Sydney Institute of Higher Education graduates are equipped with the means to effectively approach decision making in the many contexts in which questions requiring the exercise of value judgments arise. To enable this, Sydney Institute of Higher Education graduates will develop an awareness of a variety of ethical frameworks that relate to business decision making, in order that there be an explicit and robust frame of reference for them.
