Graduate Outcome Survey - Longitudinal

The focus of the Graduate Outcomes Survey - Longitudinal (GOS-L) is on understanding the medium term labour force outcomes of recent graduates. The GOS-L replaces the Beyond Graduation Survey (BGS) from 2017. Participation in 2017 is open to any higher education institution that took part in the 2014 Australian Graduate Survey (AGS).

The GOS-L is part of the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) survey suite, commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training. The Social Research Centre is working with higher education providers and key stakeholders to administer the GOS-L.  GOS-L fieldwork runs during the month of February.

The GOS-L focuses on measuring the following:

  • Labour force history
  • Further study
  • Graduate attributes
  • Graduate preparation.
