Graduates in working life
Tampere University monitors the way graduates enter working life by surveys on employment, start of the career as well as satisfaction with the completed degree and career. Graduates are also asked about the know-how gained by education and skills that are currently relevant in working life.
National career monitoring
Universities conduct career-monitoring surveys for graduates in national cooperation. Follow-up surveys are sent to Master’s, Licentiate of Medicine and Bachelor’s of Education (early-childhood education) degree holders five years after graduation and to doctoral degree holders three years after graduation. The surveys are conducted each autumn.
The results of the Universities’ career follow-ups are available on the Ministry of Education and Culture’s open Vipunen education statistics service. The most versatile are the recent Power BI visualisations of the survey results, which allow for extensive comparison and filtering of data according to desired criteria.
