The DZHW Graduate Panel 2009 is part of the DZHW Graduate Survey Series, which compiles information on study, career entry, career development and further qualifications of higher education graduates using standardised surveys. The first Graduate Panel was created in 1989. Since then, every fourth graduate year (cohort) has been surveyed. For each graduate cohort, a series of survey waves are carried out, with each wave occurring at differing time intervals following the completion of degree. The DZHW Graduate Panel 2009 comprises the sixth graduate cohort of the survey series. Similar to the 2005 cohort, the study phase of the 2009 cohort is defined by the transformation of higher education through the Bologna Process as well as the changed labour market conditions due to the economic and financial crisis in 2008. In contrast to preceding graduate cohorts, a large number of Bachelor graduates were surveyed in addition to graduates of traditional courses of study. As a methodical innovation, the second survey wave for the 2009 cohort was conducted online for the first time. In addition to the main survey, the second survey wave includes two in-depth surveys on the topics „doctorate“ and „regional mobility“.
