Have your say: The Graduate Outcomes survey

The Graduate Outcomes survey opened on Tuesday 1 September 2020 for summer 2019 graduates. The survey will be open until Monday 30 November 2020. Graduates will be contacted on behalf of the University by the Higher Education Statistics Agency Limited (HESA)/IFF research by email, text, and telephone.

What is the Graduate Outcomes survey?

About 15 months after finishing their course, graduates are invited to respond to the Graduate Outcomes survey. This national survey collects information on the activities and perspectives of graduates. The survey aims to help current and future students gain insight into career destinations and development.

Have your say

If you graduated in the summer of 2019 we'd really appreciate it if you're able to fill out the survey. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Your responses will be invaluable in helping current and future Liberal Arts students. They'll also help us promote our courses and inform our work with local and national employers. On a wider level, the survey is also of national significance as it provides a deeper understanding of the higher education sector and the state of the graduate labour market. Thank you in advance for your time and responses.

Dr Stéphanie Panichelli-Batalla, Head of the School for Cross-faculty Studies, was recently interviewed by the Oral History Review about the role of laughter in oral history interviews. You can read the interview here. This interview is directly linked to Stéphanie's paper, "Laughter in Oral Histories of Displacement: 'One Goes on a Mission to Solve Their Problems'", published in the Oral History Review.

Both the interview and paper are based on a wider project started by Stéphanie in 2014, entitled “Life Stories of Cuban internationalist healthcare professionals”. The project aims to fill the gap in the existing literature on Cuban internationalist healthcare professionals, allowing the professionals themselves to "share their stories and help us gain a better understanding of what it meant for them to join these missions, how the work impacted their lives and those of their families, and the challenges they faced as Cuban internationalists."
