  3. AGCAS Graduate Labour Market and Student Engagement Survey

    This annual survey aims to build an informative dataset of the graduate labour market as it evolves and develops over time. The AGCAS survey is unique as it taps directly into the practical knowledge and experience of the graduate labour market from the leaders of higher education careers and employability services throughout the UK.

    AGCAS first undertook this survey in 2014. The survey was repeated in 2015 and in 2016.

  5. Teaching Publications

    Updated by the AGCAS Teaching and Related Professions Task Group and published in the TARGETpostgrad Teaching publication and online on TARGETjobs and TARGETpostgrad, this series includes Routes into Teaching, Getting a Teaching Job, Education Alternatives, Teaching in Scotland, Teaching in Wales and Teaching in Northern Ireland.

  6. What Do Graduates Do?

    Published annually, What Do Graduates Do? 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. 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).

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

  7. Representing AGCAS internationally

    This document outlines the eligibility of AGCAS members to represent AGCAS on an international stage. This is in line with the internationalisation strand of the proposed AGCAS strategy 2016 - 2019, which sees internationalisation as a key strategic priority in order for AGCAS to become experts in graduate international labour markets.

  8. First-Year Student Careers and Employability Survey Report

The report includes students' prior experience of careers support, current views on careers and employability, future intentions of accessing career related activities and opportunities, and their confidence level in practical aspects of employability.

  9. The UK in the European Higher Education Area
