What is Graduate Outcomes?

Update your contact details for the
Graduate Outcomes Survey via Evision

Graduate Outcomes is a national survey which gathers information about the activities and viewpoints of graduates 15 months after they’ve finished their studies.

As a University of Bedfordshire Graduate, your response to this survey is very important as it will:

  • Provide future students with insight into their potential career destinations
  • Enable our Careers and Employability Service to offer tailored careers advice which you can continue to access for life as a University of Bedfordshire Graduate
  • Provide higher education institutions, policy makers, researchers and others with data, to understand current trends within the graduate jobs market
  • Contribute to the University’s positioning in league tables

Anyone who graduates after 1st August 2017 will be asked to complete the Graduate Outcomes survey.

Graduate Outcomes has replaced the previous Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE).

Graduate Outcomes - Your Future Shapes our FutureWho runs the survey?

The Graduate Outcomes survey is a statutory process for all higher education providers and is coordinated by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

The operations and data collection element of the Graduate Outcomes survey will be undertaken by a third-party survey contractor who will work in collaboration with HESA, Funding Bodies and UK Higher Education Providers.
