About the survey

The survey we are asking you to take part in is a national survey of everyone who has recently qualified from any university or HE college in the UK. The information you provide will also be very useful to us at the University of Bath to advise our current students about the opportunities that might be available to them.

Of those who obtained qualifications across the UK in 2015/16, 78% responded to the survey. More results can be found at www.hesa.ac.uk/news/29-06-2017/sfr245-destinations-of-leavers and www.hesa.ac.uk/news/13-07-2017/sfr246-ap-destinations-of-leavers.

If we don’t hear from you we will try to contact you again, possibly by phone, so please let us know if you change your email address or phone number. If we can’t get in touch with you at all, we may try to get information about what you were doing from someone else, either at the University or someone we can reach using the contact information you have previously provided. If you don’t want us to do this, or you don’t want to give us any information at all, please tell us. Below are details about what happens to your information after it is sent to us.

What happens to your information

At Bath we publish anonymised summaries of the information showing how many graduates are in employment, which employers they have joined, the types of jobs they go into, and how many go onto further study. You can see this if you go to the What do Bath graduates do? section in the website. We also send the information to your Faculty / School, Department and the Alumni Office.

We will send information from this survey to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). The uses that HESA makes of your survey responses are described in detail at www.hesa.ac.uk/about/regulation/data-protection/notices/dlhe-c16018.
