The Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) is a national survey being conducted for the Australian Government Department of Education and Training as part of Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT). The results of this survey will help higher education providers and the government to improve the student experience. Your feedback is very important and will contribute directly to the quality of teaching and learning for current and future students. The Social Research Centre, a leading research organisation, on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, administers the GOS. Graduates selected to participate in the GOS will receive an email invitation with a link to the online questionnaire approximately four months after the completion of their award. We strongly encourage you to participate in this survey but your involvement is voluntary. All responses are confidential and no personal information will be linked to your response.
