What is Graduate Outcomes?
A new national survey capturing the activities and perspectives of graduates is launching in December 2018. The responses to this Graduate Outcomes survey will be crucial in allowing current and future students to make informed choices and in helping us to evaluate and promote our courses.
The survey is also of national significance as it allows policy makers, charities, journalists, researchers and others to understand the higher education sector and the state of the graduate labour market.
When will I be surveyed?
Starting with 2018 graduates, you will be surveyed 15 months after completing your course. The first group of students will be contacted in December 2018 to take part.
How will I be surveyed?
You will receive an email 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, we may seek the information from a third party, such as a family member.
How can I update my contact details?
To support the survey, we are required to hold accurate contact details for you, including a personal email address, at least one telephone number, and a postal address. If you have graduated from City, keep your contact details up to date with our Alumni team by completing the update details form.
