First Destination Return

FDR (First Destinations Return) is an annual survey of leavers from higher education in Ireland.  In Smurfit Career Development Centre we survey all full time graduates of all postgraduate programmes a number of months after they have left to determine key information such as where they are working and in what role they are in.

The information included here gives a summary per MSc programme of respondents from the 2015 graduating classes and tells us where are graduates are at a point in time.

Our graduates are in high demand with 89% of our MSc students employed within 6 months of graduating. (Source First Destination Report 2015)
