Tell us where you will be in six months' time

In January, all recent graduates from UK universities will be sent the Destinations of Leavers of Higher Education (DLHE) survey to find out more about their employment and study outcomes.

This is a national statistical survey that all higher education institutions are required to deliver. The data is integrated into the UNISTATS Key Information Sets (KIS) and used by league tables. We would appreciate your help by completing the survey.

So that we can contact you, please make sure your contact details are up-to-date on SIMS before you graduate.
