What is Graduate Outcomes?
The Graduate Outcomes survey is a national survey capturing information about the activities and perspectives of graduates 15 months after they finish their studies. This new survey will replace what was known as DLHE (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education). All graduates who completed a course since August 2017 will be asked to take part in the survey, in order to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development.
