Graduate Outcomes Survey

The survey asks graduates about their activities and views approximately 15 months after completing their studies.

Graduate Outcomes survey asks new questions to provide a richer picture of the diversity of graduate outcomes. These new ‘graduate voice’ measures capture three areas:

  • How meaningful or important you feel your activity to be
  • Whether you are using the skills gained at university
  • How you are progressing towards your future goals.

Overview of the Graduate Outcomes Survey

What will you be doing?

We will be in touch to find out what you have gone on to do after graduation - whether working, studying or something else. Your input is vital.  

We will ask for your status during a specific week, approximately fifteen months after completion of your course.

Why you should take part...

Knowing what you've gone on to do means we can give you the right support as an alumnus. It also helps us better design our courses and the support that we offer our current students to fit the careers that people choose.

You could also win £500 just for taking part!  Everyone who completes the survey is entered into a prize draw to win £500 of Amazon or High Street Vouchers

Make sure you tell us...

You will be emailed a link to the online survey, which should take only a few minutes to complete.  If we don't hear back from you, we will then try to reach you by telephone.

We will email the university and personal email address that are held on record for you. It is vital your contact details are up to date and you can check our Advantage system to make sure yours are. If you are unable to access this please email with your updated details.

Even when you have completed your course, Careers & Enterprise is still available to help you with any career-related issues you have. This service is available to you for life.
