Fieldwork on PhD’s concludes with 1,360 survey respondents

Enquesta inserció laboral 2017

On 27 February, fieldwork was completed on the employment outcomes survey conducted on the doctoral degree holders from Catalan universities who gave the defence of their PhD dissertations in 2012 and 2013. 1,360 PhD graduates from a target group of 2,548 people have been surveyed, i.e., 53.38% of all PhD graduates in Catalonia from 2012 and 2013.

The employment outcomes studies coordinated by AQU Catalunya stem from the interest of the social councils in securing data and points of reference concerning the quality of access to the labour market experienced by graduates. Specifically, studies on the employment outcomes of doctoral degree holders from the Catalan university system have been conducted every three years since 2008, and this year’s edition is the fourth.

The results of previous surveys can be seen on the AQU Catalunya website.
