Every year the university performs a Destination of Leavers in Higher Education (DLHE) survey. The survey includes all UK and EU students, whose study was primarily full-time and who have successfully completed programmes of study within the UK, leading to degree at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We are working in partnership with The Careers Group, University of London, who conduct the DLHE survey on our behalf.
The results from this survey are compiled and fed back to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). The DLHE data collated by HESA is published at www.unistats.com, and used to compile some of the national press league tables and to generate a performance indicator for the employability of the university students.
This information can be used as a tool to support careers advisors, informing students of Leeds Metropolitan employability outcomes six months after graduation.
Leeds Metropolitan’s graduate employment record is strong. 91.9% of our graduates went into employment, further study or both in 2010-2011. The HESA Employability Performance Indicator (EPI) expresses the number of graduates who say they are working or studying (or both) as a percentage of all those who are working or studying or seeking work. For 2010-2011 the University recorded an EPI for full time UK first degree graduates of 89.9%.
