3 A GENERAL VIEW ON HUNGARIAN HE

4 Ratio of secondary school graduates by county 2005 Decreasing number of cohorts to enter HE Central and Western regions have more secondary school graduates

9 HE AND LABOUR MARKET IN HUNGARY

10 Ratio of graduates in different age groups 2008 Still not very high proportions of graduates Good opportunities in the job market Added value of graduation in salaries

11 Graduates in the labour market Graduates’ career opportunities have worsened, especially among freshly graduated: –longer term of the job-seeking, –unemployment rate of freshly graduated increases, –oversupply in certain fields: e.g. law, business, communication. But: –higher needs for labour in other fields: e.g. engineering, –salaries are significantly higher for graduates (highest diff. in EU), –varying needs of the labour market: some skills become more important (communication, foreign language knowledge). Unemployment rate among graduates is lower, approx. 3-5%, (average 10%)

12 Perceptions of employment among graduates Will you find a proper job in your profession in 1-2 years? Source: GCTS - Student Survey 2009, N=7800

13 HE and labour market at two levels Government actions / provisions –introducing the Bologna system, –compulsory professional internship in some fields, –establishing ‘Financial Boards’ (FB) supervising HEIs. Institutional actions –formalising labour market relations (FB, Magistrate), –joint degrees (internship, sandwich training, integrated industrial training), –joint development projects (R&D), –Career Offices: career counselling, employment agency, alumni –Graduate Career Tracking Program
