Graduate Outcomes Survey

The Graduate Outcomes survey is the biggest annual social survey in the UK and captures the perspectives and current status of graduates.

How do I take part?

You will receive an email from Graduate Outcomes inviting you to complete the survey online. This is the quickest and easiest way to take part.

You will also receive text reminders from ‘GradOutcome’. These texts will contain a link to the online survey.

You may also be contacted by telephone. HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) is delivering the survey and it has appointed IFF Research to call graduates to encourage survey participation over the phone. When calling our alumni they will identify themselves as calling on behalf of Edge Hill University.

To make sure the survey reaches you please update your details with the Alumni team. You can do this by emailing or by signing up to Edge Hill Connect.

Why should I complete the survey?

The survey aims to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development.

You’ll also be helping us understand the choices you have made since graduation and how this reflects the skills you developed whilst at Edge Hill University. This will ensure we are promoting our courses accurately to prospective students.

Who runs the survey?

The survey is delivered by the Higher Education Statistics Agency Limited (“HESA”) to help universities and colleges (HE providers) fulfil their legal requirement to report on the outcomes of higher education to the higher education funding and regulatory bodies. The funding and regulatory bodies commission the Graduate Outcomes survey and require HESA and HE providers to work together to deliver the survey.
