Graduate Outcomes Survey

Graduate Outcomes is a national survey that tells us what our graduates are up to 15 months after they have completed their studies.

The survey

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

The survey is owned by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and will be undertaken by a collaborative third-party, replacing the previous (DLHE) Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey.

How to get involved

Why should I participate?

It only takes a few minutes and it will give you the opportunity to let us know how you’re getting on after graduation. 

We value your feedback. Your voice is important to us. Your response will help Bath Spa University to improve and tailor the student experience for onward success.

As a graduate, taking part will also guarantee you continued access and tailored support from our Careers department.

If you left university on or after 1 August 2017, you will be asked to complete the Graduate Outcomes Survey 15 months after you finish your course.
