Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS)

The GOS is a national survey of recent graduates which measures employment outcomes, salaries, skills utilisation, further study activities, and graduate satisfaction.

Graduate Outcomes Survey – Longitudinal (GOS-L)

The GOS-L is completed by graduates three years after completing their studies. The survey measures graduates’ medium-term employment outcomes and further study activities.

Employer Satisfaction Survey (ESS)

The ESS is the only national survey that systematically measures how well graduates from Australian higher education institutions meet employer needs.

What is QILT?

The QILT are a suite of surveys for higher education that cover the student life cycle from commencement to employment. QILT provides government and the sector with robust, nationally consistent performance data to uphold and drive quality improvement.

The Social Research Centre administers the QILT surveys on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment.

Data collected through the QILT surveys drives the ComparED website. Prospective students can use ComparED to explore and compare Australian higher education institutions and study areas, based on the real-life experiences of current students and recent graduates.

 

Where does the data come from?

Over 400,000 students, graduates and employers respond to QILT surveys every year. Covering all study levels and both domestic and international students, QILT is the only comprehensive system of higher education surveys in Australia.

Who is participating?

All 41 Australian universities and around 90 non-university higher education providers take part in the QILT surveys.
