The New Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOs)
An exciting new Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOs) was launched in December 2018. The purpose of the survey is to learn about your success. Your responses to this survey will help current and future students to make informed choices and prospective students become aware of their options after graduation. The results are also used to impact university policy and practice.
It is all about you
- You are among the 3,061 students who are due to take part in this survey. There are four separate survey periods and you will be contacted depending on when you graduated, approx. 15 months after graduation.
- You will be contacted by telephone or email or a combination of both.
- The survey is carried out by a partner organisation on behalf of London Met and the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). All data is anonymised and confidential.
