Employment and study outcomes after graduation: An Australian higher education equity perspective

A study led by The University of Western Australia and funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) has found improvements for the disadvantaged in accessing a tertiary education, but there are still challenges that lie ahead in the job market.

The study, led by Dr Ian Li and David R. Carroll from UWA’s School of Population and Global Health, used 2016 data collected from the Australian Graduate Outcomes Study linked to administrative records from 19 Australian universities. It examined education and employment opportunities available to people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, people with a disability, and people from non-English speaking backgrounds.
