Dissemination timeline

The 2017/18 collection for Graduate Outcomes is now closed. Whilst 18/19 data collection is already underway (see an overview of survey timings), HESA is now busy working to prepare the 17/18 data for delivery. Below is an outline of the timeline for the release of 2017/18 data, which is subject to change.

  • HESA extended the deadline for feedback on coding of SIC and SOC from 6 December 2019 to 6 January 2020. Find out more.
  • The ‘methodology statement’ will detail all aspects of our data collection, processing, statistical adjustment and weighting policy, alongside an overview of the survey's background and purpose.
