Older data about graduates
Graduate Outcomes is a new survey for 2017/18 graduates, conducted differently from previous surveys and producing different information. These new experimental statistics are not comparable with the results of the earlier Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.
Data from the DLHE survey is available from our Publications archive.
