The Graduate Outcomes survey is a national survey capturing information about the perspectives and activities of graduates 15 months after they finish their studies.

All graduates will be asked to complete the survey, which aims to help current and future students gain an insight into potential career destinations. It also helps the University to evaluate our courses and degree programmes.

Your responses will allow policy makers, charities, journalists, researchers and others to understand the labour market and the higher education sector.

The survey replaces the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE) and is owned by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You will receive an email inviting you to complete the survey online. You may also be contacted by telephone and asked to complete the survey over the phone. The information can be provided by a third party such as a family member. To support the survey, it is important that we hold up to date contact information. To ensure that we have accurate contact information for you please complete our Stay In Touch form.

Did you know that you can continue to use the Careers and Employability Service after you graduate? You will receive a separate email with information on how to access our CareerConnect system as a graduate. This will ensure that you keep up-to-date with job opportunities and are able to connect with our team.
