Graduate Survey for Summer Leavers – University of Stirling

survey_logo_english-2

 

We are about to get in touch with our summer 2017 leavers (approximately 6 months after graduation) regarding the graduate destinations survey. Here’s a bit of information to explain why we carry out the survey, so you know what to expect.

All universities are required by the Government to survey their graduates to find out what they have gone on to do, whether this be employment, voluntary work, further study, taking time out to travel or doing something else.

The information is very useful to University of Stirling staff and prospective and current students in many ways. It not only builds a picture of what graduates are doing including any changes in the graduate job market; Careers Consultants use it for career guidance; students and graduates will use it to get ideas about their careers; potential students will look at it to help them decide on a course; departments can use it for marketing courses.

The results are also part of the criteria used to form University League Tables, so we aim to reach as many recent graduates as possible.

The survey is managed by the staff here in the Careers and Employability Service and we also use the survey to identify grads who need ongoing careers support. You may have used the data from previous surveys to find out what other grads from your course went on to do (all data is anonymous of course).

We will be contacting University of Stirling leavers from December 2017 to March 2018 by email (with a personalised link to the online survey – it is quick and easy to complete the questions; you will only need a minute or two to tick all the relevant boxes) and also by phone. To ensure that the survey results are really useful, we need to get a high level of responses. If you are a recent graduate, we would really appreciate your help.

We have more detail on the survey available for you here:

Many Thanks
