Graduate Outcomes

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 this information is important to the University and to prospective students researching their options. 

What happens to your survey information?

Your responses to the Graduate Outcomes survey will be used by The University of Exeter and your college, by higher education funding and regulatory bodies and some other organisations primarily for research and statistical purposes, but also in the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority. Your individual answers won’t be used to make decisions about you.

Anonymised information may be used in University publications, such as the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Prospectus, publicity materials produced by University or on official University web page(s).

For more information on how the Higher Education Statistics Agency will use your data, please visit the Graduate Outcomes Q&A pages.

Contact Details

As part of the University's statutory requirements, all contact details held about you will be sent to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) for the purposes of the Graduate Outcomes survey. Please visit for full details. If your contact details have changed since graduating, please let us know your new contact information via the following link.
