About the survey
In 2016 the Student Career Service conducted a study among students who graduated between January 2012 and December 2015.
Graduates from this period (3,489 in total) were asked by e-mail and by letter to return a questionnaire. 1,092 of the graduates responded. Because of the research method chosen, the number of respondents, and their large diversity, the results of the questionnaire gave a sufficiently correct and varied impression to make statements about the entire group.
A non-response analysis was conducted to establish whether the respondents were representative of the group as a whole, and this gave no reason to assume there were any significant differences between the respondents and non-respondents. The non-respondents did not differ significantly from the respondents in terms of paid employment, satisfaction with choice of degree programme and career development.
