Destinations and employment outcomes of young, international graduates

Publication Details

This series of factsheets and associated data tables provide information on outcomes for young, international students who complete a qualification at a government-funded tertiary education provider in New Zealand. They look at how many of these graduates do further study, return overseas, or stay and work in New Zealand. The employment factsheet also looks at how much the latter earn.

These factsheets complement a similar series of factsheets on post-study earnings and destinations of young, domestic graduates, and update some of the information in the Moving Places report which was published in February 2017.
