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.
- At three and a half years after graduation, the proportion of graduates in employment had increased compared with when they were first surveyed at around 6 months after graduation, however had decreased slightly compared to the same point for the previous cohort of graduates (2004/05).
- 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.
- Postgraduate qualifiers from Welsh institutions and Welsh domiciled postgraduate qualifiers were more likely to be in employment than first degree or other undergraduate qualifiers.
- Around two thirds of all graduates remained in or returned to Wales for employment. Qualifiers from Welsh institutions were much more likely to remain in Wales for employment (66 per cent) compared to the previous cohort of graduates (44 per cent).
- The majority of graduates were satisfied with their career to date (84 per cent for qualifiers from Welsh institutions and 85 per cent for Welsh domiciled qualifiers).
- Qualifiers from Welsh institutions who studied Creative Arts and Design and Welsh domiciled qualifiers who studied Mass Communication and Documentation were the most likely to be unemployed.
