No survey was conducted during 2001.Beyond Graduation Survey, conducted by Graduate Careers Australia, is a follow-up to the Australian Graduate Survey. It obtains an update on labour market status and some aspects of course experience. The survey also examines career aspirations, perceptions of the relevance of qualifications to employment and the importance of a qualification post-graduation.
