UTS graduate employment

On This Page

UTS seeks to engage our students in creative and inspiring learning that enables them to build strong professional identities,  future-focused graduate capabilities and global citizenship.   One measure of graduate success is the rate of employment after graduation.  At present the most reliable measures of employment are based on results of a national graduate survey, the Australian Graduate Survey (AGS).

The results below are based on the 2015 AGS, which was conducted three months after graduation, in October 2014 and April 2015.  All students surveyed graduated in 2014.

  • UTS Australian-resident graduates in full-time or part-time employment three months after completing their study:  76%
  • The average salary of UTS Australian-resident first degree graduates in full-time employment was $55,596, while the average salary of graduates of postgraduate programs in full-time employment was $87,036.
  • Faculty of Health had the highest employment rate of UTS Australian residents for both first degree graduates and postgraduates.
  • UTS Australian-resident graduates engaged in further study after completion remained at a similar level as 2014, with four per cent of postgraduate degree graduates and 14 per cent of first degree graduates who responded indicating they are in full-time study.
