Graduate Outcomes Survey
In 2016, the Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) replaced the Australian Graduate Survey as the primary measure of short-term graduate destination,satisfaction and labour force outcomes. It takes place in May and November each year, around four months after students complete their studies. GOS also releases a longitudinal report, which measures medium-term graduate outcomes (four years after graduation).
The GOS is conducted by the Social Research Centre on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training and aims to gather feedback on graduates’ higher education experiences. The GOS forms part of the suite of higher education surveys under Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT)
Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT)
The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) website, funded by the Department of Education and Training, provides information about Australian higher education institutions from the perspective of recent students and graduates.
QILT provides information gained from the:
- Student Experience Survey
- Course Experience Questionnaire
- Employer Satisfaction Survey
- Graduate Destination Survey
A filter is provided to help refine search results.
