AbstractThis is an annual survey program of destinations of degree and diploma graduates of Australian universities, colleges of advanced education and institutes of technology conducted by the Graduate Careers Council of Australia. The aim of the survey is to update the national bank of data concerning the main activity of graduates shortly after they qualify, and to provide institutions taking part in the survey with a range of information about their own graduates. The design and content of the questionnaire was altered from the 1981 graduate survey and questions become more comprehensive. However, topic areas remain consistent over the series. Topics covered include: sex; age; institution; degree obtained; major subjects or fields of study; student status in the previous year; place of residence; employment status (including type of employment, time of employment offer, place of employment, job title, description of job, hours worked, salary); further studies being undertaken (including level and type of study, place of study). Data not available on Nesstar. Please contact archive staff at ada@anu.edu.au if you wish to access these data.
