DCU is required by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) to conduct a survey among recent graduates on their employment status, up to a year after graduation. The survey is called the HEA First Destination Return. It is used to report on graduate employability and to help us develop and improve our services to students. We are asking everyone who recently completed a course at DCU in 2016 to take part in the survey to find out what they have gone on to do.
The survey takes about 3 minutes to complete. We are asking everyone to complete the survey, even if you continued to study at DCU, or if the course you completed was a course you did whilst working (e.g part-time course). If you do not complete the online survey, we will telephone you to follow up. Please contact us if you want to specify a time and date to be called.
You will need your DCU Student Number to complete the survey. Please note that the information you give is confidential and will only be used in the preparation of statistics.
To say thanks for your participation, you will be entered into a draw for a €200 One for All Voucher, or one of 5 DCU hoodies.
If you have any questions regarding the survey, please email the DCU Careers Service at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although you have now completed your course, DCU Careers Service is still available to you. If you would like help finding employment opportunities and developing your career plan, please contact us at email@example.com.
