It’s time to celebrate! More graduates in work or further study than ever before!

The DLHE (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education) survey is carried out every year and looks at where graduates are working, studying or otherwise 6 months after they leave university.Last year UH achieved its best result for 10 years of 93.2% of students in full-time employment or further study, however this year we have exceeded this to 95.2%! As a result we have moved up 30 places in the UK Performance Indicators for Employment 2013/2014 to 35th out of 152 universities in the UK which is a fantastic achievement not only for the University but for all the staff and students within it.

One student, Astrit Muzliukaj, a Management graduate of the Business School spoke of his delight of getting a graduate job and how Careers, Employment and Enterprise supported him:

“Careers helped to put everything into perspective right from the start and they gave impartial advice about applying – they were great at encouraging me to persevere and gave me to tips on how to approach each application. Looking back, this was really helpful as it prepared me well for securing my job at Countrywide.”

We recently received an award from the Vice Chancellor which recognised the support we gave to graduates throughout their job search – and from the looks of the results our graduates have certainly impressed employers!
