This figure was updated on 4 July 2024. See 2021/2022 Graduate Outcomes data error for details.

This table contains the latest two years of graduate outcomes data. The 2019/20 data can be found in the csv file above.

In this figure, CAH level 1 subjects have been derived using CAH v1.3.4. Please see the notes section of the 2020/21 student bulletin for more information about changes to subject data.

The science grouping is an aggregation of CAH level 1 codes CAH01 through to CAH13 and CAH26 with the exception of CAH26-01-03 (Human geography). CAH26 (Geographical and environmental studies) has been disagreggated so that CAH26-01-03 (Human geography) is presented in the non-science grouping labelled as 'Geographical and environmental studies (social sciences)'. All other CAH level 3 codes within CAH26 are presented in the science grouping labelled as 'Geographical and environmental studies (natural sciences)'. This grouping of science subjects has been created by HESA. Feedback on this grouping is welcomed and can be sent to [email protected]

Type of data

Survey data

Data source

HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) is part of Jisc. We are the experts in UK higher education data and analysis. We have been collecting higher education information since the 1994/95 academic year.

We collect data on the activities of graduates from higher education via the Graduate Outcomes survey, an annual survey that asks about activities 15 months after graduation. Characteristics of graduates who achieved higher education qualifications from Higher Education providers in the UK and Further Education colleges in Wales are taken from the HESA Student record and alternative provider student record data collections.

Characteristics of graduates at Further Education colleges (FECs) in England are taken from data provided by the OfS from the Individualised Learner Record. Characteristics of graduates at FECs in Northern Ireland are taken from data provided by DfE(NI) from the Consolidated Data Return (CDR).

We provide data and analysis on graduates to a wide variety of customers, including:

  • Governments
  • Universities (via the Heidi Plus analytics tool)
  • Academic and commercial researchers
  • Students and potential students
  • Trade unions and employers' associations
  • Policy makers.

Our data is used to regulate the sector, inform policy making, advance understanding of social and economic trends, support decision making, and enhance public understanding of - and confidence in - the higher education sector.

Rounding and suppression strategy

We implement a rounding and suppression strategy in published and released tabulations designed to prevent the disclosure of personal information about any individual. This strategy involves rounding all numbers to the nearest multiple of 5 and suppressing percentages and averages based on small populations.

Related releases

We publish annual and ad-hoc statistical bulletins about graduates.

Our HE Graduate Outcomes Open Data pages collect together all of the tables we publish on graduates.
