The DZHW Panel Study of School Leavers 2008 is part of the School Leavers panel series of the DZHW, which records information on post-school educational and career paths of school leavers with a higher education entrance qualification. For every graduate y... moreear (cohort) a series of survey waves are carried out with each wave occurring at a different time before and after graduation, implemented as a combined cohort-panel-design. The Panel Study of School Leavers 2008 comprises the 17th cohort of the survey series with three survey waves. In contrast to preceding cohorts, the study phase of the 2008 cohort is defined by the implementation of the two-cycle degree programme (bachelor’s and master’s degree). This change has been taken into account through a detailed recording of educational choices relevant for the course of study. The time shift in the survey implementation compared to previous cohorts made it possible to interview a higher proportion of students pursuing a master’s degree. The consequences of the decision of the Federal Supreme Court in 2005, which facilitated charging general tuition fees from the beginning of the first degree in seven federal states, could also be registered during the first survey wave of the 2008 cohort. less

The DZHW Graduate Panel 2005 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... more 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 2005 comprises the fifth graduate cohort of the survey series. In contrast to preceding graduate cohorts, the study phase of the 2005 cohort is defined by the transformation of higher education through the Bologna Process. With respect to this academic structural reform, a significant number of Bachelor graduates were surveyed for the first time in addition to graduates of traditional courses of study. Only graduates of subjects with a large number of graduates were considered. In addition to the changing academic environment, the graduate cohort 2005 also faced different labour market conditions than previous cohorts, whereby the beginning of the economic and financial crisis in 2008 marks their career entry. less

The 20th Social Survey is part of a survey series regarding the economic and social situation of students conducted since 1951 by the German National Association for Student Affairs (DSW) as part of their social survey. The Social Survey is a cross-section... moreal study which is usually carried out every three years. Key components of the study include access to higher education, structural aspects of the course and progress of studies, the economic and social situation (financing of studies, living expenses, employment, housing conditions) as well as topics in the field of activity of the German National Association for Student Affairs and socio-demographic characteristics. Over the course of the structural reform of the Bologna Process, the proportion of students of “new” courses of study in the sample of the 20th Social Survey has further increased compared to the sample of the 19th Social Survey. The implementation of “G8” in several federal states between 2009 and 2012, which reduced the duration until high school graduation from nine to eight school years, as well as the nationwide suspension of compulsory military service in 2011 allowed for matriculation at a lower age. less
