The Graduate Outcomes survey



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

All graduates who completed a course will be asked to take part in the survey, in order to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development. Your responses will also help your university or college to evaluate and promote their courses.



So, why should you fill in the Graduate Outcomes survey?

  • Your responses provide our current and prospective students with an insight into their potential career destinations.
  • It allows you to have your say about what graduate success means to you, i.e. employment, further study, using your skills etc.
  • You can help to build the brand and reputation of Regent’s, as your responses help the University to improve and promote their courses and student offerings.
  • Your feedback enables our Careers and Employability Service to provide tailored careers advice which you can continue to access as a Regent’s alumnus.

Who runs the survey? 

The Graduate Outcomes survey is a statutory process for all higher education providers and is owned by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency. HESA supports the advancement of the higher education sector by collecting and publishing timely and reliable data about the sector.

The administration of the Graduate Outcomes survey is undertaken by a third-party survey contractor who works in collaboration with HESA and the University. Find out more about Graduate Outcomes on their website.

You will receive an email approximately 15 months after completing your studies, inviting you to complete the survey online. You may also be contacted by telephone and asked to complete the survey over the phone. If you are not contactable, they may seek the information from a third party, such as a family member.
