Graduate careers are under the spotlight

 
New research shows Alliance universities are the destination of choice for international students whose top priority is getting a good job. With outstanding graduate employment rates and over a quarter of all students in the UK, they are having a big impact on the economy at home and abroad.

Students want to ensure their degree and time at university will help set them up for a rewarding and fulfilling career in a rapidly changing world. ‘Growing global graduates’ highlights the importance international students place on employability. It explores how Alliance universities are equipping graduates to succeed through university-wide initiatives, in-work opportunities, in-course opportunities and personal support.

University-wide initiatives


Institution-wide programmes and initiatives symptomatic of a university culture that values and nurtures student employability.
In-course opportunities


Creative in-course opportunities developed, often in partnership, to embed employability within learning, teaching and assessment.
In-work opportunities


Giving their students a distinct advantage in the graduate labour market through in-work opportunities such as placements.
Personal support


Innovative support designed so that students can take advantage of the services and opportunities best fitting their individual needs.
