University Alliance welcomes the results from the Longitudinal DLHE

The Higher Education Statistics Agency published the results of the longitudinal survey of 2010/11 graduates which asks what they are doing three and a half years after leaving university.

Maddalaine Ansell, Chief Executive of University Alliance, said:

“These results confirm the value of a university degree. 94% of graduates are in work or study three and a half years after graduation and over 80% of those employed are in professional, graduate jobs. Graduates earn almost £10,000 a year more than people without degrees and are more likely to be in work than at any time since 20071.”

“Through placements, work experience and industry focused courses, our universities are working hard to ensure that our graduates have the skills and experience necessary to succeed in their chosen career.”
