Career & Employability Services

Our Career and Employability Services team are here to help you with the next stage of your career.

As a University of Bradford graduate, you can use Career and Employability services for up to five years after completing your studies. We also have a Bradford Graduate Programme, specifically designed for new alumni to help with the transition to life after university.

The Graduate Outcomes Survey

Graduate Outcomes is the biggest UK annual social survey and captures the perspectives and current status of recent graduates. All graduates who completed a course will be asked to take part in the survey 15 months after finishing their studies. 

Why is the Graduate Outcomes survey important?

The survey aims to help current and future students gain insights into career destinations and development. Your responses will also help the University of Bradford to evaluate their courses and student support services – identifying areas to enhance and improve based on real evidence.

What to do now?

To ensure we can be as supportive as possible, we need to have your updated contact details. Please ensure your personal contact details are up to date on the Bradford Connect Alumni Portal. This will enable Career and Employability Services at the University to keep in contact with you and let you know when the Graduate Outcomes Survey goes live. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, please get in touch with Joanne Beaumont, Head of Careers and Employability Services, University of Bradford, at
