When deciding on a career it is worth exploring what recent graduates have done following their degree. The Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020, published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) rated the University of Cumbria as top in the North West and amongst the best in the UK for graduate employability. 86% of our graduates are in employment or undertaking further study within 15 months of graduating.
The Graduate Outcomes Survey has replaced the Destinations on Leaving Higher Education (DLHE) survey which contacted graduates only 6 months after graduation. Graduates are now contacted 15 months after they finish their studies. To find out more about the survey visit https://www.graduateoutcomes.ac.uk/
