These reports combine the last three years of available results for the 2012-2014 BCIT Outcomes Surveys of 2011-2013 graduates and for Degree 2009-2011 graduates. The reports are organized into three-page summaries containing information on graduates' labour market experiences and opinions regarding their education. More detailed information can be accessed at the BC Student Outcomes website.
