UNSW graduates maintain top position in median salary and overall satisfaction
UNSW graduates continue to lead the Group of Eight (Go8) in median salary for both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
These results are from the 2022 Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS), which is conducted four months after graduation followed by the Graduate Outcomes Survey Longitudinal (GOS-L), which is completed three years after they leave university.

UNSW remains on top of the Go8 for the 4th consecutive year for median salary three years after graduation ($88k compared to $80k nationally and $81k across the Go8).

2022 Postgraduate leaver highlights
UNSW leads the Go8 for full time employment four to six months after graduation (91% compared with 89% nationally and 87% across the Go8).
