This study examines the mediating effects of quality learning on the overall learning experience, and learning outcomes for a sample of 1180 Malaysian STEM students. Data were collected using the Quality Assurance Perception Questionnaire for Students (QAPQ-S), a self-reported questionnaire designed to measure students’ perceptions of learning quality in higher education. The contribution of this study is the empirical examination of the main exogenous variables in greater depth using SEM-PLS. The research fills a gap in the literature through its analysis of the mediating role of quality learning. The results show that quality learning is a significant mediator of learning skills, teacher support and curriculum in the achievement of learning outcomes. Quality learning fully mediates learning skills and learning outcomes while partially mediating the other relationships. Limitation and implications for practice are also discussed.
