Before you graduate, More, Preparing for your future

The University needs you! Complete the DLHE survey

 Are you graduating this summer? Help the University by completing the DLHE survey! Megan from the Careers and Employability Team tells us more…

DHLE survey

Each year, Cardiff University have a legal obligation to conduct the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey on behalf of the UK government. This exercise records employment status amongst graduates six months after leaving university.

You will receive a unique link to the questionnaire by email. Thereafter, we would be very grateful if you could complete it as soon as you are able.


When is the survey?

The survey starts in December when an email link will be sent to you by our partners, IFF Research. If we haven’t received a response by January, they will attempt to contact you by telephone.

Why should I complete it?

DLHE responses are fundamental to the success of Cardiff University as the survey feeds in to the Key Information Sets (KIS) and employability statistics, which form a key component of prestigious league table rankings.

However, your answers will also ensure the continued reputational excellence of Cardiff graduates amongst employers in Wales, the UK and the wider world – and enable current students on your course to know what can be achieved after graduation.

Where does the information go?

At the end of the survey we will send the results to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) in an encoded, anonymous format. The information will then be collated, along with the information for all other UK universities and will be used to inform policy makers and university league tables.

What do I need to do?

In order to help Cardiff to perform as well as possible in this survey, please make every effort to ensure:

  • Your details are updated on Cardiff SIMS before you graduate, and include a non-Cardiff email address and mobile telephone number
  • You complete the survey online or by telephone

Thank you in advance for your support!
