What are the aims of this survey and which countries are participating?

The EUROGRADUATE survey is a pilot study comparing working and living conditions of higher education graduates in different European countries. Initiated by the European Commission it will help policy makers monitor labour market integration, skills development and social inequality across Europe.

The EUROGRADUATE pilot study is being conducted in 8 countries, namely Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Malta and Norway.

Who is invited to participate in Malta?

Graduates from the University of Malta and the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology, who completed their studies in 2012/2013 or 2016/2017, are invited to participate.
