What Do Graduates Do?

What Do Graduates Do? is the result of a close collaboration between AGCAS and Prospects, on behalf of the Higher Education Careers Service Unit (HECSU). Published annually, it uses statistics drawn from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE) which is conducted by every university in the UK each year to try and establish what every graduate is doing six months after graduation.

The figures are compiled by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and are then used by Prospects to produce the tables and charts. Expert commentary in the form of editorials is provided by members of the AGCAS Education Liaison Task Group, careers and employability professionals who work on a day-to-day basis with students, graduates and employers, in collaboration with members of the Prospects team.

What do Graduates Do? will be of interest to many different stakeholders, including HE careers and employability practitioners, employers, parents, schools, young adults, as well as those about to enter higher education.

Key findings

Figures from the lastest edition of What do Graduates Do? (2016) show that the graduate jobs market is at its strongest since 2007:

• The unemployment rate for graduates six months after leaving university is 5.7%, a significant fall from 6.3% in 2015.
• The number of graduates entering professional level jobs increased.
