Graduate Outcomes is a national survey of all graduates, which takes place 15 months after you complete your course.
It gathers information and views about your journey after you left university. It also helps inform prospective students about career prospects before they commit to a course, as well as helping universities improve how they prepare students for their future careers.
15 months after you graduate, you will be asked to complete the survey either by email or phone.
You’ll be asked whether you’re in employment, further study, exploring the world or doing something else. You’ll also be asked how you feel about your career and whether you are utilising what you learnt during your degree.
