SFC publish longitudinal study on FE and HE graduates of 2004

The Scottish Funding Council has published its 2007 report for On Track: Class of 2004, a longitudinal study which has followed learners who gained a qualification from a Scottish college or university in 2004.

The study follows graduates with qualifications from across SCQF spectrum up to and including level 12 PHDs.

The Survey found that 88 per cent of graduates would study at the same college and university again, while 79 per cent would take the same course.

It also found that 70 per cent of participants are either 'on track' or in their chosen career, while 79 per cent are in employment and just over half felt their studies had benefitted their earning potential.

Even more positively, 79 per cent of respondents were found to have chosen to stay in Scotland after graduation.

The findings of On Track: Class of 2004 span across four publications and can be found on the SFC website here.
