Baccalaureate Graduates Survey (BGS)
The Baccalaureate Graduates Survey (BGS) is conducted by BC Stats and has been designed to gather information on baccalaureate graduates' education satisfaction levels, education financing and student debt, as well as further education and employment outcomes. Until 2005, the project targeted only university graduates from the four provincial research universities, as well as Royal Roads University. Since 2005, the survey has expanded in scope to include baccalaureate graduates from twenty-two public degree-granting institutions in B.C., including research universities, teaching universities, colleges and institutes. The project has adopted a model of interviewing graduates both two and five years after graduation:
- to meet the demand for university accountability at the system level in British Columbia;
- to gather timely and relevant data for use in program evaluation and planning processes; and
- to ensure that new, continuing, and prospective students are provided with information they can use to help them make informed decisions about their personal and economic futures.
