Today’s release of employment status and earnings data of graduates from tertiary education providers has improved the amount of employment outcomes data available to students.

For the first time students, can see the proportion of graduates employed and median earnings of graduates from different fields of study and providers.

Education is a large investment for any person and it’s important for students and their families to have the best information possible to help them make informed choices.

This new data further enhances the courses information offered on careers.govt.nz through the Key Information for Students area. Since 2013, careers.govt.nz has been providing graduate outcomes data for more than 5,000 training courses.
