Intentions After Graduation Survey 2013: Initial findings

This report shows the results of the first Intentions After Graduation Survey (IAGS). The survey was offered to all online first degree respondents of the National Student Survey (NSS) and aimed to capture the intentions of final year undergraduates with respect to future study and employment options. This survey provides a baseline of the attitudes towards postgraduate study prior to surveying cohorts affected by the 2012 fee reforms.

The report provides an overall summary of the responses to a range of questions. It groups respondents into four types and then considers the characteristics of these groups. The characteristics considered in this report are: age group, sex, ethnicity, disability, young participation rate classification, mature participation rate classification, country of domicile, mode of study and institution type. 

The timing of this survey allows for two years of baseline intentions data to be collected before the first undergraduate cohorts affected by the 2012 fee reforms are surveyed. This is because funding council fundable first degree courses are typically three years in length if taken full time, therefore the first of these students will be surveyed in 2015. This means that there will be two years of data against which to compare these students' intentions. This will be the first indicator of the impact of the reforms on the flow of graduates into postgraduate study. 

In future years, entrants to postgraduate study will be monitored and the number of students from different intention groups who actually enter postgraduate study identified. This will provide a better understanding of how the intention to study converts to actual study.
