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