Graduate Outcomes

In previous years, graduates were surveyed 6 months after graduation to establish the employment rates for graduates from each institution.  From 2017, graduates will be surveyed after approximately 15 months as part of the new Graduate Outcomes survey.  This is a statutory requirement for the University and details of how graduate data is used can be found in the Student Collection Notice.

It is important that we have up-to-date contact information for you, so please do take a minute to update your details on the Kent Alumni site.

If you have any further questions about the Graduate Outcomes survey, please contact James Corbin, Head of Careers and Employability on
