There’s nothing on the web about this yet, but there’s to be a new in-depth National Longitudinal Survey of Destinations of Art, Design and Communication Students. It will be conducted across 20 institutions, and will attempt to follow the 2002, 2003 and 2004 graduate cohorts for six years after graduation. It will also examine foundation and international students, and will include performance and architecture students who were excluded from previous surveys. Run by University of the Arts, London, Networks #3 reports that it should launch in Spring 08. It seems likely to issue a final report around 2010/2011 — very conveniently timed to contribute to the tussle over the next Treasury spending round.
