Why complete the survey?

Your response adds to the collective voice of graduates and the results will give current and future students an insight into career destinations and development. Investing a few minutes of your time will help to inspire future students.

How does it work?

The Graduate Outcomes survey is delivered by HESA on behalf of NTU.

You can complete the survey on most devices and it only takes around 10 minutes.

You’ll be contacted by either:

  • Email: the survey will be emailed to you from with a link to the online survey.
  • Text messages: you will receive text reminders from ‘GradOutcomes’. These texts will contain a link to the online survey.
  • Phone: if you receive a phone call regarding the survey, it will be from IFF Research. It has been appointed to capture survey responses by phone. They will introduce themselves as calling on behalf of NTU.

When will you be contacted?

Graduates will be grouped across the year into four cohorts based on the month of graduation. Depending on when you graduated, you will receive your survey invitation around 15 months later.
