Fifteen months after graduating you will be asked to complete the Graduate Outcomes Survey to find out what you've been doing since you left us. We'd really appreciate you filling this in, as the anonymous survey results help us to inform current and prospective students about what they can do with their degree from the Queen Mary. They also, importantly, affect Queen Mary’s University rankings and our reputation.
