Australian Graduate Survey (AGS)

The AGS is a national survey conducted by Curtin in association with Graduate Careers Australia (GCA). It is comprised of two components:

  1. Graduate Destination Survey (GDS) and
  2. Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) for coursework graduates OR
    Postgraduate Research Experience Questionnaire (PREQ) for higher degree by research students.

The AGS is administered to those who completed their course at or via an Australian campus and is available in online and hardcopy format.

The AGS has been adapted for those who completed their course at the Curtin Sarawak campus or the Curtin Singapore campus. The adapted survey is referred to as the Curtin Graduate Survey (CGS) and can only be completed online.

How to complete the survey

Students are first invited by email to complete the survey around four months after the completion of their course as follows:

  • Mid-year completers receive invitations in November of the current year
  • End-of-year completers receive invitations in May of the following year

The version of the survey a graduate completes depends on the campus location during their final semester/trimester of studies as follows:

What are the results used for?

The aggregated data from the AGS has a variety of uses:

  • Students may use the Gradate Destinations Survey results as part of their job-hunting process, as it gives the job titles, employers and average annual salary of students who completed the same course in previous years
  • Curtin and Government Departments use the data as key performance indicators, against which Curtin's performance is measured, and
  • Good Universities Guide uses the data as part of their process for determining the ratings of national universities.


Prizes and incentives are available to survey participants. For further details visit:
