Graduating in a pandemic

We’re researching your careers, wellbeing and hopes for the future.

Share your thoughts and win a prize.

The Class of 2021 survey is now underway.

Hello Class of 2021! Congratulations on completing your programme of study. Though we are still in a pandemic, compared to this time last year there has been progress with the vaccination rollout and scientific understanding about the Covid-19 virus, and tentative signs of optimism among employers in some industry sectors. How have you been getting on? We have launched our new Class of 2021 survey where you can share your thoughts and win a prize. We will also compare your results to the experiences of the Class of 2020 after their graduations last year.

We’re just rolling out the new Class of 2021 survey and will post the general link here shortly.

We hope to share findings from our Class of 2020 data with you soon! And, Class of 2020, we hope to follow up those of you who opted into to further research to see you you have been getting on over the last year. More this autumn!
