DLHE - About the Survey

The survey we are asking you to take part in is a national survey of everyone who has recently qualified from any university or HE college in the UK. The information you provide will also be very useful to us at the University of Salford to advise our current students about the opportunities that might be available to them.

Of those who obtained qualifications across the UK in 2010/11, 80% responded to the survey. Of full-time, first degree leavers, 63% reported that they were in work in the UK or abroad, with a further 8% working and studying. 16% were undertaking further study, and 8% were assumed to be unemployed. More results can be found at www.hesa.ac.uk/sfr178.

If we don't hear from you we will try to contact you again, possibly by phone, so please let us know if you change your address or phone number. If we can't get in touch with you at all, we may try to get information about what you were doing from someone else we can reach using the contact information you have previously provided. If you don't want us to do this, or you don't want to give us any information at all, please tell us. Click here to find out what happens to your information after it is sent to us.

A follow-up survey is planned for three years time so that we can get even more information about the early careers of those with HE qualifications. You might be asked to take part in this follow-up survey as well, which will be carried out by a different organisation. The current survey may also be audited - that is, checked to make sure it has been carried out correctly. If you don't want to take part in the follow-up survey, or to be contacted during an audit, please let us know. You can also let us know that you do not want to take part in the follow-up survey by ticking the box at the end of the questionnaire.
