Beyond graduation: Long-term socioeconomic outcomes amongst equity students (NCSEHE)

This report aimed to address significant gaps in scientific knowledge about the trajectories of post-graduation outcomes of students from equity groups by examining the following research questions: Do equity graduates reap the benefits of university education to the same extent as non-equity graduates over the short and long run?;  What are the differences in outcomes between graduates from different equity groups?; What are the specific outcome domains (e.g. labour market, social capital, wellbeing) where equity group graduates perform particularly well or particularly poorly? The research found that higher education could overcome social inequity in time, but outcomes for Indigenous graduates and those with disabilities often lagged.   (Funded by the NCSEHE.
