The paper examines discipline-specific data collected via a specially developed Review of Course Experience Questionnaire [RCEQ] from nine cohorts of graduands of the architecture degree at the University of New South Wales. The data provides information on aspects of architectural education aimed at explaining the discipline’s comparatively poor showing in the Course Experience Questionnaire [CEQ]. The paper questions the degree to which the CEQ is a useful and relevant measure of quality assessment for architectural education programs. It suggests that key aspects of students’ experiences of their architectural education are not addressed by the CEQ and that inherent characteristics of design learning predispose the discipline to low scores in key measures of the CEQ.

Keywords: architectural education, quality measures, course experience.
