THE EDUCATION Ministry has started publishing various kinds of statistics about the salaries of graduates of Slovak universities with the intention to help future students choose the university where they want to study. The ministry’s website, www.absolventi.iedu.sk, was launched in late September, the SITA newswire reported. The ministry stated that the salary data is not necessarily related to the quality of the education provided by the university.

The website has information about the monthly salaries earned in 2010 and the first quarter of 2011 for those who graduated from all 20 state universities and one private university in 2009. The data shows that those with technical educations earn the most.

Upon completion of a test period for the website, the ministry plans to add data about the salaries of those who have graduated with a bachelor’s degree or a PhD degree. The data can be displayed according to university and field of study, and allows comparison between the graduates’ average salary and the average salary in the university’s locality.
