What do Imperial graduates go on to do after Imperial?

The Careers Service conducts the official survey for destinations of Imperial graduates.

This survey is known as the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Educations Survey (DLHE) and is carried out using guidelines and standard documentation from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). This standardised destination survey is carried out by all UK Higher Education institutions at the same time.

As part of the standardisation, graduates are surveyed at a set time and are asked to record their first destination as of a specified date -

For graduates who completed their course between 1 August 2011 - 31 December 2011, they are asked to return what they were doing on 16 April 2012.

For graduates who completed their course between 1 January 2011 - 31 July 2011, they are asked to return what they were doing on 9 January 2012.

We investigate what all Imperial graduates have moved on to six months after graduation. This research continues to demonstrate the impressive employability of Imperial graduates, right from the early stages of their career. As a result, the College is heavily targeted by employers, and graduates from Imperial College London are in great demand.
