XVII Survey (2015) - Graduates’ employment condition

The 17th Survey on Graduates’ Employment Conditions has involved nearly 490,000 graduates from 65 Universities of 72 that are members of AlmaLaurea. The Survey refers to 230,000 post reform first and second level graduates interviewed at one year from graduation; all the 2011 second level graduates (more than 88,000) interviewed at 3 years from the achievement of the degree and all the 2009 second level graduates (more than 64,000) investigated at five years from the completion of their studies.
Finally, two specific investigations, usually run by AlmaLaurea, have focused on the first-level graduates of 2011 and 2009 that did not continue their university studies (60,000 and 46,000), interviewed respectively at three and five years after graduation.

The effective framework on the employment condition of graduates can be deepened thanks to the numerous and timely analysis collected in the traditional Volume. All the achieved outcomes are also graphically available and easily viewable by browsing the slides.
