HEFCE have appointed i-graduate as the framework supplier for the DLHE survey. Many institutions choose to outsource the DLHE collection as an efficient way of simplifying the process. We have extensive knowledge of the DLHE survey having worked with more than 150 FE institutions, with feedback from over 50,000 college students.

In the past five years we have also co-ordinated the DLHE process for 13 Universities and received feedback from over 120,000 university students.

We encourage you to speak with any of our DLHE partners about how they have found working with i-graduate and we would be happy to put you in touch with them.

We also run this survey worldwide - see the Graduate Outcomes page for more details.

The benefits of outsourcing your DLHE survey to  i-graduate:

  • Extensive experience of DLHE
  • A bespoke online survey - branded to your institution, easy to use and mobile-friendly
  • Telephone collection led by an experienced supervisor with trained telephone interviewers
  • State of the art collection and dissemination methods, we guarantee confidentiality and ensure results are acurate
  • Ability to deliver the project to a high standard within the HEFCE & HESA timeframes
  • High response rates including low decliner rates
  • Delivery of all data in interact - our interactive data visualisation tool
  • Regular communication throughout the survey process to keep you updated
  • Pricing structures offering value for money

The survey aims to contact UK and EU domiciled leavers of UK Colleges and Universities six months after leaving to establish what type of employment or further study they are engaged in.

i-graduate will:

  • Create the survey
  • Collect the data (by phone, email, text, post)
  • Provide updates on response rates
  • Code data and submit data to HEFCE for FE colleges and HESA for Universities
  • Provide interactive views of data
  • Provide benchmarked results against other HEIs

Once we have collected the data, results are provided in interact, our data visualisation tool, enabling you to explore and drill down into your results using a comprehensive set of filters including industry, course and study level.
