Graduate Starting Salaries

Graduate Starting Salaries

The graduate starting salaries for Australian universities do not display a great deal of variation between each other apart from a few interesting examples. Starting salaries can to a certain extent be affected by the location of the graduate employment, with a large city such as Sydney or a city which has had low unemployment such as Perth generally expected to have higher starting salaries than a city such as Adelaide or Hobart.
