Graduate Outcomes (GO) survey: Use your graduate voice

The Graduate Outcomes survey is your chance to tell us what you have been doing since leaving the University, whether this is employment, further study, setting up your own business, or something totally different.  Even if you have come back on a new course we would still like to hear from you. It’s also an opportunity to say how your course prepared you for what you’re doing and for your future career plans.  

You will receive an email roughly 15 months after the end of your course, with a link to complete the survey online.

It’s really important we get as many responses as possible. Your response will help the University and your department to evaluate the course you took, for the benefit of current and future students.   Think back to when you were first applying to university.  You may remember using the DiscoverUni website to help you chose your course.   It’s anonymised data from Graduate Outcomes which is used here.  Completing Graduate Outcomes will help future students make informed decisions, like past graduates will have helped you only a few years ago. 

You will initially be emailed a link to the online survey.   If you are unable to be reached by email, you will then be contacted by phone.   However, it’s much quicker and easier doing it online whilst on the sofa watching TV.  

If you have new contact details to help us with this, please let us know so we can make sure your graduate voice is heard.  The way to update your details depends whether you are a student or a graduate.

Make sure you are part of the picture.  Complete your Graduate Outcomes survey at your earliest convenience, once it lands in your inbox.  We will let you know when you are due to be surveyed, as the time approaches.  If you don’t receive the link when you would be expecting it, let us know via the above email address.   We don’t want you to miss your chance to let us know what you’re doing.

Further information about the Graduate Outcomes survey can be found at www.graduateoutcomes.ac.uk

NB: Please note that the contact details that you provide may be used for future communications from the University of Chester
