Where did they go? Graduate Destinations Survey Update

As of the 11th of August, only 14% of 2020 Graduates have completed the Graduate Destinations Survey. Can you help? If you, or someone you know, manages a social media or networking group with your recent graduates, you can help out by posting some information and encouraging involvement!

The Ako Marake | Evaluation & Student Insights Team has been collecting data on UC grads through the annual Graduate Destinations Survey (GDS). The survey invites all graduates to participate during the year following the completion of their studies.

The graduates are asked about any current employment, and/or further study, and also for feedback on the courses they completed and the skills they learned. Remember, the data collected from the GDS feeds into the Graduate Destinations dashboard, where you can find insights from previous years.
