UWE annual DLHE (Destinations of Graduates in Higher Education) Survey

Posted by Sarah Proudfoot | 0 comments

Every year we contact new graduates to find out what they are doing (working, studying, travelling etc) as part of a national destinations survey. The information is very useful to UWE staff and prospective and current students as it builds a picture of what graduates are doing including any changes in the graduate job market.  The survey is managed by the staff here in UWE Careers and we also use the survey to identify graduates who need ongoing careers support.

Last year there were 4 per cent fewer UWE graduates unemployed against an increase in graduate unemployment in the UK as a whole, according to the destination survey figures released this year by the Higher Education Statistics Agency. See our previous blog post 'Rise in UWE Graduate Employment' for more information.

We will be contacting UWE leavers in December and January. To ensure that the survey results are really useful, we need to get a high level of responses. If you are a recent graduate we would really appreciate your help.
