Enjoy High Graduate Employment
For 4 years in a row, 9 out of 10 of our graduates are in work or further study just 6 months after graduation. These statistics are derived from annually published data by the Destinations of Leavers of Higher Education (DLHE) survey. They are based on UK graduates who are available for employment and further study and whose destinations are known. (Destinations of Leavers of Higher Education (2014/15).
