The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) Survey is conducted annually by all Higher Education Institutions in the UK. Data from the survey is then submitted to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) who ensures that the data is consistent and comparable on a national level. The data is then used nationally to inform university league tables, educational policy and student choices on where to study.
Six months after graduation, the Careers Service sends out a postal questionnaire to all of our graduates, along with a link to the online version of the questionnaire. We also conduct a follow up telephone questionnaire, with the help of a Student Survey Team, to speak to graduates who have not returned the postal questionnaire.
Our Careers Advisors use the data collected during the DLHE Survey to gain a clear understanding of the current labour market and an overview of the opportunities available to Liverpool Hope University students shortly after graduation.
In other areas of the university, the data is used by departments and university management teams, to inform and improve provision for our current and prospective students.
96.5% of Liverpool Hope University graduates were in employment or further education six months after graduating in 2016, above the UK average of 94.3%.
