Students to be surveyed about their careers 15 months after they graduate

Students will be contacted about their careers 15 months after they graduate as part of a new national survey.

All graduates who completed a course at a UK university since 1 August 2017 will be asked to take part in the Graduate Outcomes survey, which runs four times a year.

The statutory survey run by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) replaces the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. The last DLHE survey showed 97.5% of 2017 Portsmouth graduates were in employment or further study 6 months after finishing their degree.

The survey results will help:

  • Our Careers and Employability Service give more tailored careers advice to students up to 5 years after they graduate
  • Current students will be able to see what career paths graduates are following
  • Prospective students will be able to consider what a course might lead to
  • It will become easier to compare different universities, courses and characteristics
  • Universities and the Government will be able to make more informed decisions

Students’ personal data will be protected as the survey will be used to paint a bigger picture rather than individual circumstances.

Further details can be found on our Graduate Outcomes page or email Paul Spendlove,  Graduate Outcomes Officer at Careers and Employability Service, at paul.spendlove@port.ac.uk
