Once you’ve completed your course, you need to set up your new password and manage your own graduate account for the Careers website.

Tell us what you are doing after your course - the new Graduate Outcomes survey

A new national survey capturing the activities and perspectives of graduates will be launched by Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) in December 2018. Graduates will be contacted to complete the new Graduate Outcomes survey 15 months after leaving university. The responses to this Graduate Outcomes survey will be crucial in assisting current and future students to make informed choices and in helping us to evaluate and promote our courses.

For graduates to support the survey, the University of Derby is required to hold accurate contact details, including a personal email address, at least one telephone number, and a postal address (this can be a parent/ guardian address)

If you completed your course after August 2017, we would be very grateful if you could now review and update the details we currently hold about you. To do this simply log into UDo using your student ID number and password. If you have forgotten your password this can be reset here.

If you have any questions or queries regarding the Graduate Outcomes survey please don't hesitate to contact the Careers Team at
