What do Warwick graduates do?

Looking for data on the destinations of Warwick graduates?

For a number of years we have used the GEMS software to enable Warwick staff and students to view anonymous data on the employment circumstances of Warwick graduates. The data are derived from the national Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

The DLHE survey is being replaced by a new Graduate Outcomes survey and the supplier of GEMS has decided to discontinue the software.

We are working on an in-house alternative and will publish the first version during summer 2018. You will be able to view:

  • Performance Indicator (also known as Positive Outcomes): The proportion of graduates who were available for employment and had secured employment or further study.
  • Graduate Prospects: The proportion of graduates who were available for employment and had secured graduate-level employment or graduate-level further study.
  • Both can be filtered by department, course, domicile, mode of study (full/part-time) and level of study (UG, PGT, PGR).

Over the next 12 months the tool will be developed to include new features.

For now, please direct any requests for DLHE data to Nicky Watts n dot watts at warwick dot ac dot uk or Jenny Hughes jenny dot hughes at warwick dot ac dot uk. You can also view DLHE data by course on the national Unistats website.

We would also welcome suggestions on features you would like to see in the new tool.
