According to Statistics Finland's Education Statistics, recent graduates found employment more easily in 2016 than one year earlier. Employment turned to a slight growth after four years of weakening. One year after graduation, 65 per cent of those with qualifications from upper secondary vocational education and 83 per cent of those with university of applied sciences degrees and higher university degrees were employed. Eighty-two per cent of those with doctorate degrees were employed.

Description: These statistics examine graduates' employment and entry into further education, and their regional transition within a given time period from graduation. The phenomena are described at the end of the year according to transition to employment, unemployment, further studies, military service or other activity. In addition, the statistics describe the transition by area, industry, employer sector or other information. The statistics are produced by combining a number of Statistics Finland’s individual-based data files. No surveys are conducted among graduates.
