Years after graduation
The time periods used in this publication are five years after graduation. This refers five full tax years after graduation. So, for the 2010/11 academic year of graduation the figures five years after graduation refer to employment/earnings outcomes in the 2016/17 tax year. This is displayed graphically in figure 1 as the cohort in bold.
Comparisons between the earnings of the graduation cohorts by Scottish Higher Education Institution and subject should be treated with caution because of the small cohort numbers.
