Ever wondered students of which undergraduate course are most employable? Do engineering students have a higher chance of gaining full-time employment than other Arts students?
In order to address these doubts, the Beyond Graduation 2009 survey investigated which university qualifications most often led to full-time employment following graduation.
1) Male bachelor degree graduates were more likely to be in full-time employment across the board than female graduates.
2) Engineering graduates are among the first who find employment. About 93.3 per cent engineering graduates work full time just four months after completing their studies, and enjoyed the highest rate of full-time employment after graduation.
3) The next most highly employed are health graduates, with 87.1 per cent finding full-time work immediately after graduating.
4) Creative art graduates, according to Career FAQs, experienced the least full-time employment after graduating, both immediately after graduating and three years later. In 2006, around 54 per cent found full-time work, and by 2009 this had increased to 75.3 per cent.
