Graduate Outcomes Surveys (GOS, GOS-L)

All Australian universities are required by law to survey undergraduates and postgraduates four months after completing their study.

The information collected from the surveys is of great benefit to JCU, because it identifies trends in employability, postgraduate activity and also feedback on the quality of JCU courses. The information is also a useful resource for current and potential students.

Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS)

The Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) is a national survey that focuses on graduate destinations, such as further study or employment.

The survey is an Australian Government initiative, forming part of a suite of higher education surveys under Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT). The survey takes place in May and November and is overseen by the Social Research Centre.

The in-scope population for the GOS includes graduates of onshore undergraduate and postgraduate accredited degrees.

Graduate Outcomes Survey – Longitudinal (GOS-L)

The Graduate Outcomes Survey – Longitudinal (GOS-L) is the longitudinal component of the GOS. It allows graduates to express their views about their course three years after graduation. The survey takes place in February.
