The Graduate Outcomes survey will be crucial in helping us to evaluate and promote our courses, in turn assisting current and future University of Derby students to make informed choices.

What is the Graduate Outcomes survey?

The Graduate Outcomes survey was 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. It is a nationwide initiative to capture graduate activity after they finish their courses.

Why should you take part?

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. We hope that completing the survey will also be an opportunity to reflect on life after graduation and your current professional or academic pursuits. Along with the University’s own Early Careers survey that will survey graduates at six months, Graduate Outcomes can offer engagement opportunities for those graduates who may want support with their career journey.

How can you take part?

Graduates eligible to complete this survey will be emailed with a unique access code to access the survey. To support the completion of your survey, you may be contacted by phone on behalf of HESA and the University of Derby. 

To receive 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 parental/ guardian address). We would be grateful if you could review and update your details by simply logging into UDo using your student ID number and password. Your password can be reset here.
