It's important for us to know the career destinations of our graduates. About 15 months after graduation, you’ll be contacted to complete the Graduate Outcomes Survey. This is a national survey capturing information about what you’ve done since university, and will help future students gain an insight into possible career destinations. Your responses will also help us to evaluate and promote our courses. We’ll send you the survey via email, or you may be contacted by phone. Please ensure that we have your correct contact details after you leave University, via ‘keep in touch’ on the Alumni page.
