B.C.: graduate success survey now online, with year-to-year comparison

VICTORIA – Ever wonder what former post-secondary students are doing a couple of years after graduating?

Whether considering a degree, diploma or certificate, students can now easily take into consideration regional employment data and what former students said about programs before deciding what institution or program to apply to attend.

Students visiting the BC Student Outcomes Dashboard (http://ow.ly/WeK8R) have access to graphical snapshots of demographic and employment data, as well as evaluation of post-secondary programs by former students.

The dashboard has been updated with new 2015 data from the Diploma, Associate Degree and Certificate Student Outcomes Survey and the Apprenticeship Student Outcomes Survey. The latest data available from the Baccalaureate Graduate Survey is from 2014.

Data for the dashboard comes from surveys of former students of 20 British Columbia public post-secondary institutions. These former students are asked a series of questions related to their educational experiences, subsequent employment and further education.

Dashboard can offer results by survey year, as well as multi-year results.
