This chapter looks at the main conclusions and policy implications that can be derived from this report. By highlighting and drawing connections between some of the key outcomes in the preceding chapters, some general conclusions are drawn about the higher education experiences and labour market outcomes of graduates in the participating countries. Subsequently, several policy implications were identified which were thought to be relevant to one or more of following stakeholders: the European commission, national governments, employers, higher education institutions and students.
