XX Survey (2018) - Graduates’ Employment Conditions

The 20th Survey on Graduates’ Employment Conditions has involved overall more than 630,000 graduates from 74 Universities. The Survey refers to 270,000 2016 post reform first and second level graduates interviewed at one year from graduation; all the 2014 second level graduates (110,000) interviewed at three years from the achievement of the degree and all the 2012 second level graduates (108,000) 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 2014 and 2012 that did not continue their university studies (80,000 and 68,000), 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 Report.
