HESA Graduate Outcomes reports now available on the Reporting Service

We are pleased to inform you that the first interactive reports using data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) Graduate Outcomes survey have been produced via the Corporate Data Warehouse and are now available on the University Reporting Service, which recently replaced Reportal.

These reports were developed in consultation with The Careers Service and replace the GEMS database that displayed Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) data. The reports include the 2017-18 Graduate Outcomes data released in March 2020.

The first three Graduate Outcomes Reports are:

B7.1.1 Graduate Outcomes Overview
B7.1.2 Graduate Outcomes - Employment
B7.1.3 Graduate Outcomes- Further Study

Graduate Outcomes is the biggest UK annual social survey and captures the perspectives and current status of recent graduates. All graduates who completed a course are asked to take part in the survey 15 months after they finish their studies. The survey aims to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development. Further information about the HESA Graduate Outcomes survey, including news on national statistical releases, can be found on the Careers Service website.

The data set and resulting outputs is currently marked as ‘Experimental’ by HESA as they are newly developed or innovative and undergoing evaluation. Graduate Outcomes is a new survey, conducted differently from previous surveys and producing different information. These new experimental statistics are not comparable with the results of the earlier Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

Over the next few weeks, HESA will be releasing additional reports and data sets which will allow for further comparisons against the national average and other UK institutions. Performance indicators (of each UK institution) will be released in Autumn 2020, date yet to be confirmed. Analysis will be added on the Careers Service website.
