The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) Survey helps to determine general employment and study outcomes from higher education courses. Please take this opportunity to support Cardiff University, who have a legal obligation to record this information for the UK Government.

Who will be surveyed?

All leavers, whether you studied full-time or part-time – even if you are returning to Cardiff University for postgraduate study.

How will I be surveyed?

You will receive the questionnaire by email, by post, or by phone. The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) requests every method possible be tried. If you misplace the survey or move house please email the DLHE team

What happens to my information?

At the end of the survey, Cardiff University send coded, anonymous information to the Higher Education Statistics Agency. The information will be collated, along
with all other UK Universities, and will be used to inform policymakers and university league tables.

How is this information used?

Cardiff University Careers & Employability Service produces a variety of tables and information based on the results and presents this in a series of reports. Find out more at
