Results show that graduates from the University of Trento find work a lot more easily (65% of graduates are employed after a year from graduation against a 56% at the national level), they earn more (1.197 euro a month net against a national average of 1.065) and they are very happy with their decision (91% would choose the same course). At an international level, the University of Trento is included in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2015 with six fields of study.
