Where have they gone? Graduate Destinations is coming!

Have you ever wondered what happens to UC graduates once they leave us? Look no further!

The Ako Marake | Evaluation and Student Insights team will invite all former students who completed a degree in 2020 to complete the Graduate Destinations Survey next week.

The Graduate Destinations Survey (or GDS for short) is one of UC’s longest-standing annual surveys. It asks recent graduates about their employment, any volunteer roles they hold, and whether they’re undertaking any further study. The GDS helps provide advice to current and prospective UC students around trends in the employment market, further studies, and salary information. It also provides information to help improve our programmes and student support services.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on the data, you can check out last year’s findings on ESI’s data dashboards here. Otherwise, keep your eyes peeled for the 2021 results due for release at the end of September.

For any questions, or if you would like ESI to come to speak to your team about this dashboard and others, please email Ellie Kay and Elyse Thompson at surveys@cantebury.ac.nz.
