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.
