Destinations of Leavers (DLHE) Census - tell us what you're doing after your course

Every year the University of Derby, on behalf of the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), asks all students who have recently completed a course to take part in the Destinations of Leavers of Higher Education census (DLHE) to find out what they are doing in terms of work and/ or study.
