Graduate Destination Survey

At the University of Waikato, we follow the progress of our alumni with great interest and pride.  As a recent graduate of the University, we would like to know what you gained from your studies, what you are doing now and how your studies are contributing to your career.

What is the survey all about?

The Graduate Destination Survey (GDS) results help us develop future student offerings and inform us on how Waikato qualifications are relevant to the workforce. Survey responses help us assess students' experience and how qualification(s) impact employment and career prospects.

In the survey, students are asked questions about:

  • employment, internships, and practicum during studies.
  • transition into employment after study.
  • employment status currently.
  • qualification and student experience satisfaction.
  • study intentions for the future.

Who is surveyed?

Alumni who have graduated with a qualification in the previous year are invited to complete the survey.

Remember to keep your contact details with the University up to date after graduation and look out for your email invitation in the middle of next year.
