Graduate Outcomes Survey (GoS) is conducted by Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT). Also, according to GoS, the results include graduates of Australian higher education institutions who have completed their education within 4 to 6 months of the survey.
The median salary for full-time employment undergraduates and postgraduates is AUD 60K. For international students with research degrees, the median salary is around AUD 89.5K. The numbers have risen after the dip in the labour market marked in the year 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
