The Graduate Outcomes survey was designed following extensive consultation with the sector and in-depth cognitive testing and research.
The survey includes a set of questions which are to be asked of all graduates (depending upon routing). There are optional and mandatory questions as well as a set of opt-in question banks.
The current version of the survey (C21071) can be found below. Following a review of the survey, a number of changes were made in year four (c20072). To find out more, read our blog 'Graduate Outcomes survey review – our approach to continuous improvement'.
