Why take the survey?

Taking part in the Graduate Outcomes survey is an essential part of your higher education journey. As the biggest UK annual social survey, the collective graduate voice is powerful and will directly impact the future of education for prospective students. So join your fellow graduates and be part of the picture of education today.

This survey is unique because it picks up with you over a year (15 months) after you finished your studies. This allows you to reflect on the value your studies have played in your current activities, how this compares to your original plans and how you’re using skills you’ve picked up whilst in education. Only you will know if you left education with the skills and knowledge you needed to get you to where you are now.

We also want to understand the non-traditional routes that graduates are taking following education. Employment isn’t the only successful outcome: we want to know what you do, and really understand what you see as fulfilling.

Depending on when your course ended, you’ll be sent an invitation to complete the Graduate Outcomes survey 15 months (or so) later. For example, if your course ended in May to July 2022, you’ll receive the survey in September 2023. The survey won’t take long to complete and you can take part on all devices.
