Graduate Outcomes survey
All universities are required to request the participation of recent graduates in a new national survey on behalf of the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).
The Graduate Outcomes survey will capture the activities and perspectives of graduates. The responses to this Graduate Outcomes survey will be crucial in allowing current and future students to make informed choices and in helping universities to evaluate and promote their courses. The survey is owned by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency, who have published more information for students as well as guidance on how your contact details will be used.
You will be contacted within 15 months of completing your course to take part. To support the survey, we are required to hold accurate contact details for you, including a personal email address, at least one telephone number, and a postal address (this can be a parental/guardian address).
We would be very grateful if you could now review and update the details we currently hold for you.
Careers support now and in the future
We provide ongoing careers support to all of our graduates and are happy to help whether you are taking the first steps on your career path or changing careers mid-life.
We have a dedicated alumni careers adviser on hand to provide bespoke, free, professional advice to any alumni, no matter how long ago you may have graduated. This advice can be by phone, email or in person – we are even open some evenings. Call 01273 642855 to make an appointment.
Each year we put on a number of careers events to assist both recent and more mature graduates. These include careers fairs, forums and workshops. Sign up on the Careers Service website.
You can email your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org for checking.
Library and IT Services
You can still access your university accounts and use the library and other services after graduating. This page gives you further information plus a useful list of the timescales by which you will need to ensure you have captured all your important information.
Continue your studies
If you gained your undergraduate degree with us, you may be eligible for a 10 per cent discount off tuition fees for future courses, including postgraduate degrees. This alumni discount may be used in conjunction with the early settlement discount. If you achieved a 2:1 or above in your undergraduate degree, you could be eligible for the £3,000 Vice-Chancellor’s postgraduate alumni scholarship for a masters degree.
If you’re thinking about PhD study keep an eye out for new funding opportunities and studentships available throughout the year.

Missed your ceremony?
We can help make sure that you still have pictures of you in graduation gowns for friends and family. Two options are available for this. We can lend you a gown and mortarboard and take your picture in our office at Mithras House against a plain wall and email it to you or you can bring along a friend to take some snaps for you.
This service is available from Monday to Friday 10am–4pm and needs to be booked in advance. Alternatively, if you would like a picture by the official graduation photographers, you can wait until the next graduation ceremony (February and July each year). We will sign you in to the venue and lend you robes so you can have photographs taken by Tempest. We will not charge you for the use of the robes but photography packages start from around £35.
Just get in touch and let us know if we can help.
