Graduation Class of 2021

Graduate toolkit

Recent graduates, it’s time to be inspired!

Make the most of your alumni network – make a difference to your career!

When you first leave University, it can feel incredibly daunting and overwhelming. But luckily, this online toolkit is here to help with your next steps and to provide some other important information.

Check out the Careers and Employability Service section below which will signpost you to helpful resources and free events. 

Then we have a great selection of on-demand content. Be inspired with videos featuring fascinating graduates, who have been where you are now, discussing a wide range of topics from building resilience, creating a mindset for success, and starting a business from the ground up. 

We'll always let you know about upcoming events and benefits available too - so long as we have your up-to-date details.

Graduate Outcomes Survey

The Graduate Outcomes survey is the UK's largest annual social survey of 700,000 graduates.

The survey is conducted 15 months after you have completed your degree and we would love it if you could take the time to complete it when you are contacted by email or telephone.

Your response will help to inspire future students with what is possible beyond their degree and support us in continuing to improve the educational experience we offer. To find out more, please visit the Graduate Outcomes Survey website or to learn more about how the data you provide will be used and processed, visit the HESA website.
