International students crucial to UK graduates’ prospects

It would also impact upon the job prospects of UK students and the economy as a whole.




Fireworks and networks

The difference of opinion on brokering unpaid internships is just one example of tensions in the coalition government: Nick Clegg has condemned them, saying 'we want a fair job market based on merit, not networks'; David Cameron is 'very relaxed' about offering work placements to people he knows.

It also suggests more and more students are undertaking work experience and internships, supported by their careers service. 




Welsh graduates surpass stats for work experience

Figures published by High Fliers Research in The Graduate Market in 2012 state that a third of graduates secure a job with an employer after completing an internship with the company.
