Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education 2011/12

Release date: July 2013

Provides information on the activities of students after they have left a higher education provider.

Data is collected through a survey carried out approximately six months after students leave. The publication includes information about what the leaver is doing - whether studying, working or both. Where a leaver is in employment, it records the type of industry, sector, occupation type and location.

Much of the data is also linked to data from our Student record. This allows analysis of destinations by students’ attributes such as sex, subject of study and qualification obtained.
