Student walking with text: your next steps - information for final year students

Graduate Outcomes survey

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

As an LJMU graduate, your response to this survey is very important as it will:

  • Provide future students with insight into their potential career destinations
  • Enable our Careers Team to offer tailored careers advice which you can continue to access for life as an LJMU graduate
  • Provide higher education institutions, policymakers, researchers and others with data, to understand current trends within the graduate jobs market
  • Contribute to the University’s positioning in league tables

Anyone who graduates after 1 August 2017 will be asked to complete the Graduate Outcomes survey.

Graduate Outcomes has replaced the previous Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE).


Who runs the survey?

The Graduate Outcomes survey is a statutory process for all higher education providers and is coordinated by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

The operations and data collection element of the Graduate Outcomes survey will be undertaken by a third-party survey contractor who will work in collaboration with HESA, Funding Bodies and UK Higher Education Providers.

What do I need to do?

Whilst you are a student and after you leave University ensure you keep your contact details up to date via LJMU Connect.

LJMU will also be in contact with you (via email and telephone) after you graduate to ensure we have the most up to date contact information for you.

When will I be contacted?

All leavers will be contacted approximately 15 months after completing their course.
