This document reports the findings of the Tracer Study that was compiled using the data for the year 2019. The study surveyed IIUM students who graduated in time for the November convocation of 2019. Graduates answered 2 sets of online survey questionnaires – one was constructed by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and another by the IIUM Tracer Study team. The MOHE survey consists of 7 parts – PART A: Respondent’s Background, PART B: Current Job Status, PART C: Employment, PART D: Unemployed/ Not Working and Others, PART E: Further Studies, PART F: Evaluation Of Programmes And Services Offered By Respective Institution, PART G: Effectiveness Of Study Programme and Self Readiness and PART H: Agreement. Respondents who were employed were asked to complete Section C, to clarify about their employment status, occupation, income, and other work-related particulars. Graduates who were not working at the time of the survey were asked to complete Section D, which asked their reasons for not working, job search, and preferences. Those who were furthering their studies were asked to complete Section E. All respondents were asked to complete Sections F and G. Meanwhile, the IIUM questionnaire consists of nine different parts which include categories on the graduates’ level of satisfaction on different offices and services offered by IIUM, self-perception of Islam and Islamisation, condition related to mental health and well-being, involvement in community programmes and realization of Sustainable Development Goals. A total of 4908 graduates participated in completing both surveys – 4119 Bachelor degree graduates, 651 Master graduates, and 148 PhD graduates. They represent 14 Kulliyyah at IIUM as well as 3 institutes, namely INHART, ISTAC, and IIiBF. For completeness, comparison by Kulliyyah include the Institutes although their number of students are less. The findings of this Tracer Study are presented in 16 different parts. The first three parts present the graduates’ profile in terms of demography, study profile and employment profile. The fourth and fifth parts address students’ involvement in entrepreneurship and community service, while the sixth part evaluates the academic programmes. The seventh and eighth parts examine the facilities and services offered by IIUM which include Mahallah, Library, Kulliyyah, Career, Guidance and Counselling services, etc. The ninth part examines the graduates’ perception of the effectiveness of their study programme and self-readiness while the tenth part examines students’ job-seeking behaviour.
