We’re pleased to report the latest findings of the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, carried out annually for the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). The an annual national survey, conducted on UK and EU graduates at this point only, is carried out by every higher education institution in the UK, asks leavers from higher education what they are doing six months after graduation.
The most recent survey undertaken by the Brunel Placement and Career Centre on 2013 graduates from Brunel University shows positive trends in employment outcomes for postgraduate student in Brunel Business School.
- The number of postgraduate leavers from Brunel Business School in employment has risen by 7.4%.
- The number of leavers in further study has increased 2% and the number combining work and study has decreased by 2.3%.
- The number of unemployment has decreased by 6.8%.
Outcomes overall have continued their upward trend with 88% of 2013 postgraduate leavers experiencing a positive outcome – that’s 12.9% more than in 2012.
Employability initiatives from Brunel Business School such as Brunel Business Life or Postgraduate Work Placements may be a contributing factor, as more and more postgraduate students take advantage of the professional training and networking opportunities provided by the School alongside their degree.
