If you completed a course at the University of Westminster between 1 January 2017 and 31 July 2017 you will have received calls from us and emails titled ‘Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education 2017’.
The Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) is a statutory annual survey that collects information about the employment and further study activities of Higher Education (HE) leavers approximately six months after completion of a course of study. Every university or HE college in the UK contacts their graduates (and those leaving with a qualifying exit award) by telephone and email for the survey.
Please click on this link to complete your survey.
If eligible, you can complete the survey online or over the phone; it should only take a few minutes to complete. Most of the questions just require you to select a box with your answer. Questions marked with an asterisk require a response for the survey to be counted as a valid response.
Results from the DLHE survey contribute to university league table rankings and the employability information is used on the Unistats website. Your opinions and outcome will help us to shape our courses for future generations of students and the results influence how employers view your qualification. We are interested in any work and/or further study you were doing on 10 January 2018 and beyond.
Nationally, the survey is co-ordinated by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and the results are submitted by Higher Education Providers to HESA each year. This information helps universities and the government to have an accurate and up-to-date picture of what graduates face after leaving university. HESA stipulates that universities should obtain a response from 80 per cent of leavers, and we appreciate your participation in helping us to achieve this target.
If you need assistance in completing the questionnaire, or need access to it in an alternative format, please contact the Planning and Performance department on 020 3506 6334 or email DLHEsurvey@westminster.ac.uk.
Information on the survey and how your data is processed can be found on the University of Westminster website.
