What Brunel graduates do

As part of the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE),  each year universities contacted their graduates six months after completing their studies.  The survey asked graduates whether they were employed, studying, both or neither, e.g. travelling or looking after family. Employed graduates were asked to give a brief description of their role, the kind of company they work for, and their annual salary.

The information was compiled by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) who report national outcomes and provide the data for university league tables that are published in the national press. 

  • What do graduates do (WDGD) Presents findings from the DLHE survey giving graduate destinations/outcomes by subject. You can download earlier editions if you would like to compare statistics.

  • What do researchers do? The Vitae website includes discipline-specific infographics highlighting career destinations, research roles and occupations, and publications on the ‘Early career progression of doctoral graduates’ that show trends in employment for doctoral graduates three years from graduation.
