Graduates' reflections on activity

Note: HESA has identified that a very small proportion of graduate responses to the 'graduate voice' questions were previously inadvertently excluded from the relevant tables and charts for some specific combinations of graduate activities. We have now developed an improved methodology to ensure maximum coverage of this data. The data in charts 1, 2 and 3 and table 8 were updated on 6 July 2020 using this enhanced approach.

Graduates were asked three questions to summarise their feelings about their activities at the time of the survey (these questions are commonly referred to as graduate voice questions). The following tables display responses to these questions.

All tables and charts include a link underneath allowing you to download the data you see on screen, including filters, and will also include a link to download the complete source data as a machine-readable csv file.
