Stay Connected - UWTSD Your Future

The Graduate Outcomes survey is a national survey capturing information about the activities and perspectives of graduates 15 months after they finish their studies.

All graduates who completed a relevant course will be asked to take part in the survey, in order to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development. Your responses will also help UWTSD to evaluate and promote our courses.

The survey is also of national significance as it allows policy makers, charities, journalists, researchers and others to understand the higher education sector and the state of the graduate labour market.

It is therefore important that we have your most up-to-date contact details so we can contact you after you graduate.  If you are a current student you can update your details using MyTSD, however if you have completed your studies you can update your contact details below.

Update Your Contact Details

When will I be surveyed?

You will be surveyed approximately 15 months after you complete your studies.  

Graduates will be grouped across the year into four cohorts based on the end date of your course. Depending on when your course ended, you will receive your survey invitation around 15 months later. For example, if your course ended in August to October 2019, you’ll receive the survey invitation in December 2020.

The table below shows when you’ll be surveyed:

End date of course

Survey invitation

August - October 2019

December 2020

November 2019 - January 2020

March 2021

February - April 2020

June 2021

May - July 2020

September 2021

You’ll have approximately 12 weeks to complete the survey and you will receive emails and texts to remind you to take part.

How will I be surveyed?

You will receive an email from UniversityOfWalesTrinitySaintDavid@graduateoutcomes.ac.uk inviting you to complete the survey online. You may also be contacted by telephone and asked to complete the survey over the phone. If you are not contactable, we may seek the information from a third party, such as a family member.

How will my responses be used?

Your responses will be anonymised and will be used by UWTSD to support current and prospective students, and graduates, and by other organisations for research and statistical purposes. Before you start the survey, HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) will provide detailed information about how your data will be processed, who will receive it, and what they will use it for.

How do I make sure I am invited to take part in the survey?

UWTSD will pass on your information to HESA. All you need to do is make sure we have accurate contact information for you – especially a valid personal email, and mobile or landline telephone number.

What do I do if I don’t think UWTSD has my accurate contact information?

You can update your contact details at any point up to a week before the survey closes to give us revised contact information. We will return this information to HESA to provide to the contractor delivering the survey.
