About Graduate Outcomes
The Graduate Outcomes survey is a UK-wide survey capturing the activities and viewpoints of some graduates 15 months after finishing their studies. The aim of the survey is to understand your student experience from a learning and employment perspective. The Graduate Outcomes survey is owned by HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) and replaces the DLHE (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education) survey. If you are selected to take part in the survey you will be contacted directly by HESA.
To support the survey, we are required to hold accurate contact details of you, our graduates, including a personal email address, at least one telephone number and a postal address (this can be a parental/guardian address if needs be). If you have graduated since 2016, it is likely that you will be able to update your contact details on our dedicated alumni portal. If you graduated earlier than this, you will not be contacted to take part in Graduate Outcomes but you can update your contact details should you wish via the ‘update your details’ form.
