Even though your time at university is coming to a close, UAL will still be there to support you. As a member of the Alumni Association, a network of over 200,000 former UAL students, you are entitled to an exclusive range of benefits and opportunities. These are designed to support your career and grow your professional and social networks.
What is the Graduate Outcomes survey?
All UAL graduates are asked to take part in Graduate Outcomes survey about 15 months after you leave your studies. As part of the UAL community, it’s important to us that you take part in the survey. It helps to shape the support we offer from our careers team and course leaders for both students and graduates.
The purpose of the survey is to find out what you are doing in pursuit of your creative career. Let us know whether you are working for yourself or a company/agency, part-time or full-time, paid or unpaid, temporary/freelance or permanent – it’s all important. You might be working on your portfolio or doing many of these things at the same time, so be sure to mention everything you are doing. Also, bear in mind that your paid work might not be the most important thing you are doing to develop your creative career. Even if it is not your full-time job, pick the work activity that is most important to you.
We’d be delighted to hear from you and we value the information collected, which, although anonymous, can still inform the teaching practice of the course you studied. It helps us make UAL the best place to study art and design. The feedback from the survey also enables us to understand how appropriate our courses are for the industry. It also allows us to shout about all the great work our alumni are doing!
To give more information about the Graduate Outcomes survey we have created a short video.
