Postgraduates are valued by employers

Did you know that many graduate schemes welcome applications from PG students? Even if a scheme is marketed at UG students or only states UG qualifications within its entry requirements, employers are still interested in you and what you have to offer! Graduate recruitment is invaluable to employers as a way to bring new talent into the business and shape it to reach its potential.

Graduate Outcomes

The Graduate Outcomes survey is the biggest annual social survey in the UK. The survey is important because your opinions will help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development and the University to shape our programmes for students who are following in your footsteps. The survey also contacts postgraduates:

  • 15 months after graduation,
  • by email or phone,
  • to learn about your activities and views.

Please keep your details up to date and respond if HESA contacts you to complete the survey.
