Graduate Outcomes

What is it? 

The Graduate Outcomes survey is a new national survey capturing information about the activities and perspectives of graduates (and other students) 15 months after they finish their studies. 

It replaces the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. 

Who is included?

All those graduates who completed a higher education course on or after 1 August 2017 will be asked to take part in the survey.

When will I be contacted?

We will contact you shortly before the survey begins to update your contact details. If you would like to let us know your current contact details now, that would be very helpful. Please complete our contact details form.

You will be approached by the survey contractor to take part in the survey approximately 15 months after you have completed your course.

What is it for?

Your responses will be very useful to us here at Coventry University to help us evaluate and promote our courses, and to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development.

The survey is also of national significance as it allows policy makers, charities, journalists, researchers and others to understand the higher education sector and the state of the graduate labour market.

Who is running the survey?

The survey is owned by HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) and administered by a third party survey contractor in conjunction with universities/colleges.

What if I don’t want to take part?

If you do not wish to take part in the survey, you should inform the survey contractor when they contact you.
