Graduate Outcomes: Data & Reports
The Graduate Outcomes Survey is a national survey distributed to all graduates of higher education institutions (HEIs), nine months after graduation. The outputs of this nationwide survey highlight the current constraints or demands on new graduates, and give a picture of what graduates are doing in their early stage careers.
Each year, detailed outcomes are given for undergraduates and postgraduates, as well as international graduates. Earnings analyses are also provided and each report contains a particular focus on an area of topical interest. Furthermore, detailed Info-bytes dig down deeper into the Graduate Outcomes Survey dataset, demonstrating the breadth of insight the Survey provides.
