Description
  • Abstract

    The EUROGRADUATE survey is a one-off pilot survey of higher education graduates of the cohorts 2016/17 and 2012/13 in eight European countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Croatia, Lithuania, Malta, and Norway). The pilot project aims at laying the foundation for a Europe-wide graduate survey. The survey provides insights into the experiences of European graduates during their studies and the impact on their professional lives and their lives as European citizens. Graduates were surveyed one year (t +1, cohort 2016/17) or five years (t +5, cohort 2012/13) after graduation. The main topics of the EUROGRADUATE pilot survey are: labour market relevance, skills, (international) mobility, political participation, and further studies. The results alllow comparing different higher education systems in Europe as well as analysing country-specific processes of vocational and social integration of higher education graduates. At the European level, these data can be used to monitor progress towards the European Higher Education Area and, where appropriate, to identify areas where investment should be increased and resources expanded.

Note
Comments on the data package: To ensure comparability of the data, the EUROGRADUATE pilot survey strived for as much standardization in data collection methods as possible. At the same time, data collection methods needed to correspond to the different starting conditions in the countries. Countries varied considerably e.g. regarding the availability and quality of population data, the availability and quality of contact information of the graduates, or the readiness of higher education institutions to participate in the survey. Despite all efforts, differences in survey conditions between countries may have led to differences in the quality of the data between countries. Researchers using the data are advised to see if any limitations are imposed on their analyses by carefully taking note of the descriptions of the data collection in the pilot countries provided in documentation of the data as well as of additional information provided in the report "Technical assessment of the EUROGRADUATE pilot survey" (Mühleck et al. 2020).
