From the existing annual higher education graduate employment survey data we know that where students study and what they study both have a significant influence on their employment prospects when they graduate.
However, a new research report released by CSIRO Data61’s Ribit shows that beyond these factors, course-integrated work is key to improving graduate employability and increasing graduate salaries.
In fact, the report shows that courses with a built in work component have better graduate employment outcomes across all fields of study.
Ribit connects tertiary students with innovative companies for relevant work while they study. It is free for employers to post a job.
