Graduate Outcomes Survey

The Graduate Outcomes survey is a national survey that captures the employment or study status of graduates 15 months after they finish their course. All Queen Mary graduates will be asked to take part in the survey, in order to help current and future students gain insight into potential career paths following their programme of study.


The survey will be conducted by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). Depending on when your course ended, you will receive your survey invitation around 15 months later.

You will receive an email from HESA on behalf of Queen Mary University inviting you to complete the survey online. Please note, you may also be contacted by telephone. HESA has appointed IFF Research to call graduates to encourage survey participation over the phone. They will identify themselves as calling on behalf of Queen Mary University.

The table below shows when you’ll be surveyed:

November 2017 - January 2018 March 2019
February - April 2018 June 2019

Your responses will be used by Queen Mary University, higher education funding and regulatory bodies and other organisations primarily for research and statistical purposes.

Please note that your individual answers will not be used to make decisions about you.

The Student Privacy Notice details how we will collect, use and protect your personal data.
