Because all of the articles that I have seen so far doesn't state that, starting should be around $3k+.
That's a very general statement!
I find that the industry, company and role have a much higher impact on fresh graduates' starting pay as compared to their choice of education.
Also, most companies have a standard salary package based on your role and experience. Therefore, the starting pay should be the same for the same company and role, irregardless of the graduating university.
For that reason, I think that salary guides that are classified by degree / qualifications are more accurate of fresh graduates' starting salaries.
I think you'd have to take these articles with a pinch of salt.
IMHO, more of often than not, these articles tend to omit certain facts like that (after tax salary etc.)
But still, a good starting point for interesting discussions!
It depends on 1) whether you're able to find a job, 2) whether you're willing to cut starting pay for a job and 3) type of course you're in.
there's always a range! some earn lesser some earn more. same for the other unis!
