UCD graduate destinations

Every year the Career Development Centre conducts a “First Destinations” survey of UCD graduates, surveying whether our graduates are in employment, in further study or training, or seeking employment, nine months after they have graduated. We typically achieve a 70-75% response rate. The data collected is submitted to the HEA for use in publications such as “What Do Graduates Do?”

Data collected via the First Destinations survey can also be made available to UCD staff should it be useful/relevant to their roles (for example College Principals, Deans, Heads of Schools, Heads of School Teaching and Learning, Vice Principals and Associate Deans of Teaching and Learning, Marketing/Recruitment Managers etc.). Data can be broken down by individual college/school/course etc.

If you would like to view First Destinations data, please request access by asking your Head of School/Unit to email careers@ucd.ie, granting authorisation and detailing the reason that access is required.
