Destinations of leavers from higher education (DLHE): Longitudinal survey
This bulletin provides information from the Longitudinal DLHE survey of leavers from UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) who qualified in 2006/07. These students were asked about their main activities as at 29 November 2010. The bulletin focuses on the 3,010 UK domiciled higher education students who qualified from Welsh institutions and the 3,345 Welsh domiciled higher education students who qualified from UK institutions and also responded to the survey. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 22 December 2009.

- Part-time qualifiers from Welsh institutions and part-time Welsh domiciled qualifiers were more likely to be in some kind of employment compared to full-time qualifiers.
