Employment comes sooner for applied grads in BC

April 22, 2008

Results from the BC College and Institute Student Outcomes Survey (CISO) shows 85% of applied program graduates were employed at the time of the survey, compared to just 64% of arts and sciences graduates. Students who studied arts and science were more likely to pursue further studies. 95% of respondents said they were satisfied or very satisfied with their education. CISO is conducted annually province-wide, and asks former students to rate their education and report on further studies or employment experiences. Maclean's OnCampus | Methodology
