Audit Results Report – Annual 2018 Financial Audits

Universities’ graduate survey information

This section presents survey results of students graduating from university. These survey results are not usually reported in each university’s annual report.

Tables 11 and 12 present graduate responses to the Graduate Outcome Survey, a national online course evaluation survey conducted by the Social Research Centre on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Education and Training[3]. The survey instrument changed in 2016, including a shift in the reported population from the term ‘bachelor’ to ‘undergraduate’. As a result, prior year data in Tables 11 and 12 has been reworked by DET to be as comparable as possible.

Graduates are surveyed approximately 4 months after completing their courses. The 2018 information relates to students who completed their studies in 2017.

Graduate satisfaction of undergraduate students

Table 11 presents the survey results showing the percentage of graduates who were satisfied with their overall undergraduate study experience.

Graduate destination of domestic undergraduate students

Table 12 shows the percentage of domestic undergraduate level graduates in employment, including full-time, part-time or casual, in the year after graduation. The numerator includes those graduates who are employed, irrespective of whether they want to work more hours.

[3] University survey results are available on the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) website. QILT is administered by the Social Research Centre on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.
