August 20, 2014

British Columbia has released the results from its annual student outcomes surveys, reporting a graduate satisfaction rate of 93%. The surveys poll graduates from a wide range of academic, technical, and developmental programs, 2 years after graduation. 91% of respondents that graduated from diploma, associate degree or certificate programs were in the workforce, 88% of baccalaureate graduates were in the workforce, and 96% of former apprentice students were employed at the time of the survey. “Students who have a good experience with post-secondary education are more likely to find good jobs and be successful in their work and personal lives,” said Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk. The surveys collect information on employment, student loan/debt information, and student satisfaction with the education they received. BC News Release | The Province | Survey Factsheet
