Graduate Outcomes information for staff

Find out about the graduate destinations data the Careers Service holds and how to access it.

Introduction

The Careers Service analyses and disseminates the information from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE) and the HESA Graduate Outcomes survey.

New: Graduate Outcomes Survey

The Graduate Outcomes Survey replaces the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey. All graduates who completed a course from Bath after August 2017 will be asked to take part in the survey 15 months after they finish their studies.

The survey is owned by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency who have created a website with more information www.graduateoutcomes.ac.uk.

The data will not be published by HESA until 2020. The information and statistics from DLHE 2016/17 therefore have added impact and ‘shelf life’, since it will be the only national destinations data available until 2020.

How can you help?

Final year students

You can help by communicating these messages to final year students:

  • please participate when you are invited to respond to the Graduate Outcomes survey 15 months after leaving Bath
  • the responses will be crucial in allowing current and future students to make informed choices and in helping the University of Bath evaluate and promote our courses.
  • update SAMIS prior to leaving with contact details (email / telephone)
  • if you have new contact details (email or telephone) following graduation please email alumni@bath.ac.uk

After graduation

  • mention to graduates who get in touch e.g. providing references, to expect the Graduate Outcomes survey 15 months after leaving and promote the importance of responding (see above), and request that they email alumni@bath.ac.uk with any new contact details (email or telephone).
  • during the survey periods, if HESA shares lists of those who have yet to respond, we will link with departments to circulate these names. This will enable key graduates to be ‘nudged’ to respond if appropriate (particularly relevant if graduates have returned for further study or are staff here at Bath).

DLHE subject summaries - no restrictions

Summaries for Bath full-time UK and Other EU domiciled first degree graduates in each subject of study and leavers from selected Doctoral programmes, showing examples of job titles, employer names and further study details, are available on our website. These are short summaries suitable for careers guidance and admissions use; for example, Open Day handouts.
