  • The post-study earnings and destinations of young, domestic graduates

    This series of fact sheets and associated data tables provide information on the outcomes for young people who complete a qualification at a tertiary education provider in the New Zealand tertiary education system. They look at differences in earnings and earnings premiums for graduates who complete qualifications at different levels and in different fields of study. They also look at destinations including what proportion of graduates are employed, in further study, overseas, or on a benefit.

    These fact sheets update the ones which were first published in March 2016. They also update the reports 'Moving on up', 'Looking at the employment outcomes of tertiary education', 'What young graduates earn when they leave study' and 'What young graduates do when they leave study'.

    Many of the results are also available via the easy-to-use and informative Compare Study Options tool on the Careers New Zealand website.

  • Moving places: Destinations and earnings of international graduates

    International students play an important role in New Zealand through the contribution they make to New Zealand’s economy, the diversity they bring to New Zealand and its education system, and the lifetime links that are created between their country and New Zealand.

    In this report, we look at what international graduates do and earn after they complete their tertiary education studies in the New Zealand tertiary education system.  We look at results for all graduates who have ever been international students and who have studied at a government-funded provider.  The report uses similar methodology to the recent series of fact sheets on Post-study earnings and destinations of young, domestic graduates.  We find that outcomes vary depending on the qualification level and field of study that a student has completed their qualification in, and also differ to those for young, domestic graduates.
