We want you to be proud of your graduate journey and by completing the Graduate Outcomes survey, you will be able to tell your MDX story.
The Graduate Outcomes Survey is the biggest measurement of recent graduate perspectives and activity. It helps us understand how we can continue to support our students and graduates.
By completing the survey you can help us to:
We'll get in touch with you via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) 15 months after finishing your course and graduating with instructions on how you can take part.
The quickest and easiest way is to complete the survey online but it is also possible that you will be contacted by telephone. A call operator will identify themselves as calling on behalf of Middlesex University and ask the same questions found in the online survey.
The questions are aimed at understanding what you've been up to since graduating. There will be a focus on employment, further study and any entrepreneurial activities.
You'll be asked to identify the most important thing you've achieved since graduating. This could be paid or voluntary work, further study, freelancing, developing your portfolio, looking for work or travelling.
The Graduate Outcomes survey also measures your ‘graduate voice’, meaning you have the opportunity to talk about:
The survey is delivered by the Higher Education Statistics Agency Limited (HESA) to help universities and colleges (HE providers) fulfil their legal requirement to report on the outcomes of higher education to the higher education funding and regulatory bodies.
The funding and regulatory bodies commission the Graduate Outcomes survey and require HESA and Higher Education providers to work together to deliver the survey.
HESA supports the advancement of the higher education sector by collecting and publishing timely and reliable data about the sector.
All responses to the survey are anonymous and your current employment information will not be reported at individual level in any presentation of the data, nor will we ever contact your employer after you complete the survey.
Middlesex University will only use your anonymised data to provide internal statistical summaries for various stakeholders (e.g. academics, careers & employability service), and external statistical summaries for prospective students who may like to know what our students do when they leave.
Such anonymised summaries may also be captured in University publications, including our undergraduate and postgraduate prospectus and our web pages.
HESA have also provided a detailed privacy notice outlining how your data will be processed, who receives this, and what it will be used for.
By completing your Graduate Outcomes survey, you will benefit from:
We offer lifelong careers and employability support for our graduates which includes:
Every year, we also launch "Class of ..." LinkedIn groups where you can connect with your course peers and stay up-to-date with current opportunities and exclusive alumni events. Watch out for an email from MDXworks after you graduate with an exclusive invite to join.
To support you in being able to tell your story, we'd love for you to join our Alumni Community – a network of around 239,000 MDX graduates. By joining you can keep your contact details up to date and receive updates, invitations and MDX news.
It is not compulsory to complete the Graduate Outcomes survey, but we do hope that you will continue to contribute positively to #TeamMDX by telling us the latest chapter in your career story.
