Graduate Outcomes Survey

This page is for alumni of Oxford Brookes and gives details of a survey which you may be asked to complete.

The Graduate Outcomes Survey is a national survey which all UK graduates will be asked to complete. It is owned by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency, who capture information about recent graduates.

Your responses will help Oxford Brookes to evaluate and improve the employability of students taking our courses as well as to promote them to prospective students. The results of the survey helps current and future students gain an insight into some of the career destinations of others who have completed their course.

The data allows organisations such as policy makers, charities, researchers and others to understand the activities and destinations of Higher Education leavers in the UK.

15 months after you finish your studies, you will be invited to complete the survey online or over the phone. If you cannot be reached on the phone number you have provided, HESA might ask whoever answers for a better way to contact you. HESA works in collaboration with Oxford Brookes.

You do have the right to opt out of the survey but please do remember that your responses to the survey could help to improve the courses we offer for future Oxford Brookes students.

It is a statutory requirement that Oxford Brookes passes on your contact details to HESA, however you can chose to opt out of the survey at the point when you are contacted.

We will contact you shortly before you are due to be invited to complete the survey with further information on how to do so.

You will not be contacted by Oxford Brookes or any other third party as a result of completing the survey.

The findings from the survey will be used by Oxford Brookes to evaluate the employability of our courses and to continue to make improvements.
