Graduate Outcome and Employment Data

Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT)

The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) website, funded by the Department of Education, Skills and Employment,  provides information about Australian higher education institutions from the perspective of recent students and graduates. Further information on the research can be found on the DEST website.

QILT provides the following information:

  • Student Experience Survey (SES), measuring teaching and learning outcomes, and reports on multiple facets of the student experience.
  • Graduate Outcome Survey (GOS), providing information on the labour market outcomes and further study activities of graduates.
  • Graduate Outcome Survey – Longitudinal (GOS-L), supplementing the GOS by measuring the medium-term employment outcomes of graduates, approximately three years after they have completed their course.
  • Employer Satisfaction Survey (ESS), providing information about the quality of education, the generic skills, technical skills and work readiness of the graduate employed in their workplace.

A filter is provided to help refine search results.
