Please help us as we would really like to find out about your activities after studying with us by taking part in the Graduate Outcomes survey.
The Graduate Outcomes survey* is a national survey capturing information about the activities and perspectives of graduates 15 months after they finish their studies. All graduates who completed a course will be asked to take part in the survey, in order to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development. Your responses will also help us to evaluate and promote our courses.
The survey is also of national significance as it allows policy makers, charities, journalists, researchers and others to understand the higher education sector and the state of the graduate labour market.
The survey is owned by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency, who have published more information for students as well as guidance on how your contact details will be used.
We would really appreciate it if you would take part in the survey and would like to thank you in advance for taking part in the survey.
