Graduate Outcomes Survey methodology

Version 4.0
Published 2023-05-31


The Survey methodology contains details of the most important aspects of survey design, data collection, analysis and dissemination for Graduate Outcomes. It is aimed at the users of Graduate Outcomes survey data as well as those with an interest in survey methodology.

The Survey methodology will be a ‘live’ record of our practices, at least in the first few years as we make improvements to our data collection, processing, analysis, and dissemination policies. We aim to revise it as changes to existing processes are made and new initiatives are introduced. Previous versions of the statement are available to users in our archive.

Please refer to our glossary page for definitions of terms used in this document.

If you would prefer, you can download a PDF copy of the Survey methodology in two parts: part one (history and background) and part two (survey design and implementation).

Navigate using the 'next' and 'previous' links at the bottom of each page or skip to sections using the menu on the right.
