Where do UCC graduates go?

The Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) is an annual survey of graduates carried out six to nine months after graduation; providing a snapshot of the employment or further study choices made in the previous academic year. The surveys held each year help UCC to not only evaluate their courses on offer but also to understand the situation from a recent graduate perspective; to show what success looks like for UCC Alumni and, most importanly, to ensure UCC's continued recognition as a globally leading university working towards creating a sustainable future. 

The HEA provide excellent University specific information which can be found here:
