Our graduates are highly employable

  • 95.4% of our UK graduates from full-time first degrees in 2015-16, who were available for work, were in work or further study six months after graduating.
  • 77.7% were either in graduate-level occupations or serious further study.
  • These figures are based on an 82.9% response rate for UK full-time undergraduates to the DLHE survey.

We are currently conducting the DLHE survey of the 2016-17 leaving cohort, data to be published from May 2018. The new Graduate Outcomes survey will commence with the 2017-18 cohort.

Destinations data is available via the Tableau Server reporting system, including access to basic statistics and details of graduate destinations, along with more detailed statistics. We also publish other information about employability, including Labour Market Information (LMI) and Key Performance Indicators.

Those unsure what the destinations survey is, why it's important, and how it's conducted should see our Destinations FAQ. We are always happy to talk to staff about destinations data to help them get to grips with graduate employability.

Advice for staff on how to improve graduate employability can be found on the Careers & Employability website.
