From 10 November, students who completed a course between 1 January and 31 July 2015 will be contacted as part of the latest Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

Every year, the University contacts its graduates to find out what they are doing. The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey is a national survey of everyone who has recently qualified from higher education in the UK.

The survey aims to find out about the employment and further study status of our graduates approximately six months after completing a course, as well as collecting more detailed information on the type of work you are doing, who you work for and other important employment data.

If you finished a course between 1 January 2015 and 31 July 2015, then you will be asked to take part in this year's survey.

In November you will be contacted by an organisation called Careers Group who is carrying out the survey on behalf of the University. You will receive an email titled "University of Westminster Graduate Destination".

We would very much appreciate it if you can find the time to take part but participation is not compulsory. You can complete the survey online or over the phone.

The information you provide to us will be very useful for advising our current students about the opportunities that might be available to them. Nationally, results from the DLHE survey are used in university league table rankings and to generate the employability information stored on the Unistats website at http://unistats.direct.gov.uk/.

If you have any questions about the DLHE survey, please contact Wayne Clark (Senior Manager – Research and Development, Corporate Planning and Performance) at [email protected].
