Formerly the Destinations of Leavers from HE survey (before 2016) this survey is delivered by HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) to all UK Universities.

All graduates who completed a higher education course in the UK after August 2017 will be asked to take part in the survey 15 months after they finish their studies. The survey looks to understand whether students are in employment, have continued with further study or are doing something else and to what extent their qualification played a part. The results are used by Universities, the Government, charities, journalists, researchers and others to understand the higher education sector and the state of the graduate labour market.

The Oxford U-Flourish Student Wellbeing and Academic Success Survey Study is a university-wide study, representing a collaboration between the Department of Psychiatry, Oxford Student Union, the University Student Welfare and Support Service, and Queen's University, Canada. The survey aims to better understand the determinants of student wellbeing and academic success, and to evaluate the mental health support needs of students. It also considers any barriers and gaps students experience if they access mental health care in Oxford.

The survey is sent in Michaelmas each year and takes approximately 10-15 minutes. A follow-up survey is sent in Trinity to students who have completed any of the previous surveys.
