If you completed a course in 2017/18 or later

The new, national Graduate Outcomes survey is launching in winter 2018/19. The survey will capture activities and perspectives of UK graduates.

The survey is owned by the Higher Education Statistics Agency, who will engage a specialist survey organisation to contact you on our behalf, about 15 months after you finish your course.

Please take a few minutes to respond - the anonymous survey results will be invaluable in helping current and prospective students make informed career choices.

See HESA’s information for students and guidance on how your contact details will be used.

We will be in touch before the survey starts to ask if your contact details are up to date.
