In addition, postgraduates prefer part-time work despite the fact that half of the students are unemployed. The horizontal axis shows the work destination. While the vertical axis shows the numbers starting from 5000 to 30000 for graduates and from 500 to 3000 for postgraduates.

    A huge number, graduates and post-graduates, was keen on pursuing the studies. They represent the majority with a number of 29,665 graduates and 2,725 postgraduates. Furthermore, it is clear that the percentage of postgraduates working as part-timers was higher than this of graduates; 2,535 to 17,735.

    The attention of the students swept away from voluntary work marking the lowest numbers of all the destinations; 3,500 graduate volunteers to 345 postgraduate volunteers. Half of the students were unemployed, 16,235 graduates and 1,625 postgraduate.
