Completing the survey

Each year, the University contacts all recent graduates to ask what work or study they are doing a few months after graduation. This is for the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. All universities take part in this and your response helps NTU to provide employability support to graduates and current and prospective students by letting them know the roles graduates move on to after University.
Go to the DLHE survey .

How does DLHE work for you?

A link to the online survey is sent to the personal e-mail address that the University holds for you. This happens a few months after you have graduated and will ask you about what you are doing at a specific date. Please follow the link to complete and return the survey, which usually takes no more than five minutes.

Any questions?

What happens next?
If we don't hear from you after our email, we will try to contact you again, possibly by phone, so please let us know if you change your email address or phone number.

If we can't get in touch with you at all, we may try to get information about what you were doing from someone else at the University or someone we can reach using your contact information. If you don't want us to do this, or you don't want to give us any information at all, please tell us.

A follow-up survey happens three years later to gather details about the early careers of graduates. This survey is carried out by a different organisation and, if you don't want to take part in the follow-up survey, please state this on the questionnaire or let us know.

What happens to your information

Any information you choose to give us will be held securely and confidentially on the University's alumni database in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Data is used to promote close links between Nottingham Trent University and its former students, including analysis of employment data to inform University courses and services, communication of relevant news, benefits, services and career-related information, and the promotion of ways in which alumni can support the University and its students – past, present and future.

Data may be made available to our academic, administrative and support departments, alumni groups and societies (including overseas). Data will not be disclosed to external organisations other than agents acting for the University on alumni related projects (for example, mailing houses for the mailing of alumni publications.)

The University may also provide information to external surveying companies working on behalf of government agencies or funding bodies (including, without limitation, the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) who may contact you directly from time to time as part of their Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) longitudinal survey. Any information will be treated confidentially.

If you give a mailing address, email, fax, or telephone number(s), you authorise Nottingham Trent University, and agents acting for the University, to contact you using any of these methods. You may opt out of specific or all communications at any time.

We will send information from this survey to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) – find out more about how the Higher Education Statistics Agency uses the survey responses.
