Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) 

Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) collects information on student activity after completing any higher education qualification in the UK. It is a snapshot taken approximately six months after leaving your course. The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) requires every University in England and Wales to contact recent leavers and ask them (you) to participate in this survey.  The Careers & Employability Service conducts the follow up on behalf of the University of Liverpool.

How to take part

If you completed a course between 1 January and 31 July 2017 initial contact will made by email with a direct link to complete the survey online. Alternatively, we will contact you by telephone and one of our call handlers will complete the survey on your behalf from your responses. Read our Data Collection Notice to find out what happens to the information you provide.

It should only take a few minutes to complete - most of the questions just require you to tick a box with your answer. The online questionnaire will be available until 5 March 2018, but please remember that the survey is asking you about work and / or further study you will be doing on 10 January 2018. If you need assistance in completing the questionnaire, or need access to the form in an alternative format, email or call us +44 (0)151 794 5819.

We must get a certain number of responses to ensure our data is valid and as meaningful as possible. We may contact you a number of times if we don’t receive a completed questionnaire. This could be by reminder emails, phone calls, by post or text message.

If you have caller ID, our calls may be displayed as coming from an ‘unknown’ or ‘blocked’ number, or they may show the University of Liverpool main telephone number (0151 794 2000) that does not allow you to call us back direct. We understand that many people are reluctant to answer calls from such numbers, but currently this is unavoidable.

If we can't get in touch with you, we may try to get information about what you are doing from a third party; either at the University or someone we can reach using the contact information you have previously provided. However, we do prefer to receive the information from you, so that we know the information is accurate.

Graduating in December 2018 or July 2019?

A new national survey capturing the activities and perspectives of graduates is launching from December 2018. The responses to this Graduate Outcomes survey will be crucial in allowing current and future students to make informed choices and in helping us to evaluate and promote our courses.  To support the survey, we are required to hold accurate contact details for you, including a personal email address, at least one telephone number, and a postal address (this can be a parental/guardian address). We would be very grateful if you could now review and update the details we currently hold about you. You can review or amend your details on Liverpool Life.

The survey is owned by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency, who have published more information for students as well as guidance on how your contact details will be used.
