Description
  • Abstract

    The DZHW Graduate Panel 2013 is part of the DZHW Graduate Study Series, which uses standardised surveys to gather information on the studies, career entry, career development and further qualification of university graduates. The first Graduate Panel was conducted in 1989, since then every fourth graduate cohort has been surveyed. For each cohort of graduates, several waves of interviews are conducted, each wave taking place at different intervals from the time of graduation. The 2013 Graduate Panel is the seventh cohort of graduates in the study series. Even more than the graduate cohorts of 2005 and 2009, the study phase of the 2013 cohort is characterised by the changes in higher education within the framework of the Bologna Process and changes with regard to the comparability of degrees and the resulting changes in mobility. The career entry phase of the 2013 graduate cohort is characterised by an upswing after a severe depression as a result of the economic and financial crisis in 2008. In contrast to previous cohorts, persons with traditional degrees (Diplom or Magister) are no longer part of the sample in the 2013 cohort. (Exceptions exist for certain degree programmes in individual federal states which continue to award a Diplom degree).

Sampled Universe
  • DZHW Graduate Panel 2013 - first wave: The population of the DZHW Graduate Panel 2013 consists of all graduates who obtained a first higher education degree qualifying for employment or a Master's degree at a state-recognised higher education institution (HEI) in Germany in the examination year 2013 (winter semester 2012/2013 and summer semester 2013). This includes all Bachelor's, Master's, State Examination and artistic degrees. Excluded from the population are persons who have completed their studies with a Diplom or Magister degree. Exceptions exist for certain courses of study in individual federal states which continue to conclude with a Diplom degree. In addition to Diplom and Magister graduates, the population also excludes those persons who obtained their degree at one of the HEIs of the Bundeswehr (German Federal Armed Forces), at Universities of Applied Administrative Sciences (Verwaltungsfachhochschulen), Universities of Cooperative Education (Berufsakademien) and at specific HEIs exclusively for professionals. Also excluded are graduates of dual and part-time study courses as well as correspondence courses and online study courses.

Note
Comments on the data package: As a large number of higher education institutions from North Rhine-Westphalia and Baden-Württemberg decided not to take part in the survey, respondents from these federal states were for the most part not able to be interviewed by the DZHW and are therefore not part of the sample (for details see Data and Methods Report, Chapter 3).
