Futuretrack is a longitudinal survey exploring the relationship between higher education, employment and career planning.

Funded by HECSU and led by a team of researchers at the Warwick Institute for Employment Research, Futuretrack is tracking the cohort of students who applied to university through UCAS in 2005/06.

About Futuretrack

The project explores why students decide to apply to higher education, how they choose their institution and course, and why they think higher education is a good investment. It also examines their attitudes to money, university careers services, extracurricular activities and unpaid work, and explores graduates' post-university experience of employment.


Aaron Porter, NUS President 2010/11

"The Futuretrack survey is probably the most comprehensive cradle-to-grave (or rather application to post-graduation) study looking at cohorts of students through their journey in higher education"


Jan Moore, Head of the Careers Service at MMU

"Futuretrack reveals when and (more crucially) why students make career decisions. It deepens our understanding of students and enables us to provide better advice and guidance"


Vicky Trehorel, Futuretracker

"I think the survey is brilliant! It’s great for providing insight for prospective students and for identifying holes in the HE experience"
