  4. AGCAS Careers Fairs Survey

    The AGCAS Careers Fairs Survey reveals the considerable value students place on face-to-face interactions with employers. The research has implications for the planning of careers fairs and leads to recommendations that could strengthen practice in this area, for example the type of information that students value at careers fairs.

  5. AGCAS First-Year Career Readiness Survey 2016/17

    The AGCAS First-Year Student Career Readiness Survey is designed as a baseline survey at the university entry point to evaluate students' levels of career readiness. Career readiness and careers support needs are revealed through students self-reporting their previous experiences of careers support, motivations for course choice, steps already taken to enhance their employability, current perception of university life and future career plans.

  6. Review of technology platforms used by AGCAS member services

    A survey based on feedback from AGCAS Link surveys carried out in early May 2017.

  7. Embedding Skills Development into the postgraduate curriculum.

    This case study focussed on a pilot project at the University of Warwick, which brings together academic staff and professional services to create and deliver more relevant, tailored support within postgraduate programmes.

  8. AGCAS Graduate Labour Market 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.

  9. 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? (2017) shows that the graduate unemployment rate is at its lowest since 1989. 

  10. Working in partnership: enabling social mobility in higher education

    Universities UK has produced the final report of the Social Mobility Advisory Group, which was set up with the aim of identifying practical ways to address inequality in higher education. It has highlighted the need for a rigorous evidence-based approach to social mobility, the importance of evaluation to inform and shape future work and that sustained change can only be achieved through collaboration and partnership between universities, schools, colleges and employers.
