The Graduate Outcomes survey is an annual survey of graduates in the UK that captures their progression into employment or further studies. The survey is a statutory requirement and it is delivered by HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency), the Designated Data Body of the Office for Students (OfS). It is aimed to assess how your higher education has contributed to your personal growth and development and whether your experience as a student was exactly what was promised to you.
If you are an LSME Graduate who finished your studies after August 2017 with financial support from the government, you will be contacted by the graduate outcomes team from HESA and asked to take part in the survey 15 months after graduation.
You are encouraged to take part in this survey as your valuable response is essential to LSME and to the sector as a whole. This is because your contribution will add to the collective voice of graduates in the UK and give current and future students an insight into career destinations and development via the publication of the unistats data for LSME. Your responses will also support LSME in the evaluation of its services and in the promotion of our programmes. The survey is also essential for the Government, Charities, researchers and others to understand the higher education sector and their link to the graduate workforce in the UK. Rest assured that you will not be identified by your name or contact details in any publication by taking part in the graduate outcome survey.
Prior to the survey, LSME will contact you by email or telephone to remind you of the survey and its importance to higher education students. It will be much easier for us to contact you if your details are registered on the LSME Alumni Portal shortly after graduation and you have also taken the internal end of course survey and updated your contact details.
All leavers who are contacted to take part in this important survey are strongly to do so in order to improve the quality of information available to prospective learners.
