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.

The project interviews graduates two years after graduation:
