Career monitoring survey for alumni
Through alumni, universities of applied sciences receive feedback on the knowledge and skills they need for the world of work. The career monitoring survey is one way for alumni to have a say in the development of education.
An annual career monitoring survey is organised in autumn for graduates who graduated five years earlier, with the aim of assessing their employment situation and satisfaction with their degree.
The results of the survey are used, for example, in the planning of study modules and in the development of training courses. It will also provide information for higher education students and applicants to support their personal career planning and employment. The responses will be used to help current students in their career planning and to develop future UAS education to become increasingly work-oriented.
Implementation of the survey
The survey will be carried out by the universities of applied sciences and the Otus Foundation for Research on Learning and Education.
Respondents will be approached by e-mail and SMS in the autumn. The e-mail will be sent to email@example.com and the SMS will be sent to the name of Uraseurannat or SAMK.
The career monitoring survey for 2017 graduates has ended. Thank you for your responses.
