Graduate Outcomes Survey
Information is collected about our leavers to find out what they do after university. It really helps us improve our service and advice. The survey data is submitted to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), who publish reports for all the UK Higher Education Institutions. All information you provide is confidential and is used anonymously.
