Abstract

The study looks at the employment outcomes of 17,337 graduates of pre-Bologna degree courses (llicenciatures, diplomatures, etc.). The university system in Catalonia continues to be a driver of differential employability, due to the fact that: * 8 out of 10 people were in work three years after graduating and 1 out of 10 were unemployed. * Moreover, they took less time to find a job (77% of graduates of pre-Bologna degrees were employed within 3 months of graduating). * According to figures from the Spanish Labour Force Survey (EPA), the employment (placement) rate of people with higher studies is practically twice that of people with just a primary education. Nevertheless, the 2014 study shows the apparent impact of the economic crisis with a drop of 10% in the employment (placement) rate compared to the figures for 2011.
