The National Student Outcomes Survey is an annual survey that collects information on vocational education and training (VET) students’ reasons for training, their employment outcomes, satisfaction with training, and further study outcomes. The survey covers students who have an Australian address as their residential address who are awarded a qualification (graduates), or who successfully complete part of a course and then leave the VET system (subject completers). Since 2017, international graduates who completed their training in Australia (referred to as international onshore graduates) have been surveyed as an additional component to the National Student Outcomes Survey.
The 2019 survey covers Australian graduates and subject completers as well as international onshore graduates. This year the survey opens from Friday 31 May to mid-August 2019. Students who completed a VET qualification or subject in 2018 may receive an invitation to participate in the survey.
