IRIM has started implementing ‘The Graduate employment survey’ in cooperation with the Research Institute of Labour and Social Protection (RILSP). This project is a large sample survey that uses tracking methodology that can represent nationwide data. This is the third survey covering graduates of universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions who finished school in the academic year 2015-2016.

The survey aims to identify the graduates’ employment, form and time of hiring through recruitment agencies, skill match, challenges they face in the workplace, and reasons of unemployment. Moreover, the goal of the survey is to provide the sector policy developers, decision makers of universities, TVET institutions, and researchers with quantitative data.

You are welcome to review the findings and reports of our activities as well as proposals related to survey methodology and analysis. If you want to express your wishes, you can do so through the RILSP website (

Currently, a team of 30 researchers is working on the project. We wish the best of luck and continued success to project team.
