understand students

Which sectors and employers are most popular with your students?
Who or what is most influential on their choices?
Do your students feel that they are getting enough careers information and employability support?
What drives career service engagement?
What do your students expect from their future world of work? How do your students’ views compare with the regional and national averages?

Our partnership model is simple and effective:

You can request bespoke questions that are...

relevant to your strategy and needs.

You support Cibyl’s School Leaver or Graduate Research by...

sharing the relevant survey with your students in a way and on timescales that work best for you and your team.

If you hit a minimum required level of response...

(usually 100 responses) you will receive a free report revealing the perceptions and career aspirations of your student body v. national average.

Our team will support you...

with marketing collateral and content: all you need to do is figure out how and when you can share the survey with your students.
