What is the First Destination Survey

The First Destination Survey (FDS) is designed specifically to help us learn more about the experiences and aspirations of our recent UCLA graduates. The responses we collect help future Bruins prepare for their career and post-graduation goals. This effort is focused on reporting the actual post-graduation status of all UCLA undergraduates, sent to all graduating students at the end of each quarter. We ask graduating students if they're still looking or if they've landed an internship, employment, or admissions to graduate school.

How do we use the data?

The First Destination Survey (FDS) provides comprehensive and reliable data which can be used to accurately inform and shape career expectations of current undergraduates, new alumni, and prospective students. Equally important, the FDS facilitates UCLA compliance with the outcomes data requirements of the Higher Education Opportunities Act. It also provides accurate post-graduation outcomes information to the UCLA community at large (administrators, academic departments, etc.), parents, employer's and hiring organizations. You can view reports on the data.

Please note that your responses are strictly confidential. Data are reported in the aggregate and no report will ever identify you individually.
