Become a partner

Would you like to understand more about when and how your students make decisions about their future careers and/or next study path? 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 support from you? What do your students expect from their future world of work? How do your students’ views compare with the regional and national averages?

At Cibyl, we partner with 60+ universities and 40+ schools to carry out our annual research.
This means that these select institutions have chosen to proactively support our surveys in return for free, exclusive and anonymised insight reports on their students.

We are always seeking additional partners, as we are keen to empower universities and schools to make evidence-based decisions around how to effectively engage and support their students in their employability. Given the changing to levels of engagement and career priorities due to the pandemic, this is a particularly interesting and instructive time to tap into some national data.

Our partnership model is simple and effective:

You support our 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.


We tend to build long-term partnerships, which means that we essentially become your chosen research partner over an extended period of time. For example, you can receive regular ‘pulse checks’ of your students’ aspirations, enabling you to implement evidence-driven changes to your careers support and delivery, and to track their impact through our subsequent surveys.
