Career monitoring survey

The career monitoring survey is sent every year to students who graduated from a University of Applied Sciences with a bachelor’s or a master’s degree five years earlier. The survey examines the careers and employability of the graduates and the graduates satisfaction with their degree. Some questions of the survey also measure the quality of employment. The results of the survey are being used in developing the UAS's in Finland and also with the career counselling in the University of Applied Sciences.
