Press Release: University scores top marks for graduate job prospects

4 July 2013

The University of Buckingham has come top among the non-specialist institutions in the country for graduate employment for the third time.

Figures released by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) reveal that the University scored 96.9% for job prospects ahead of Oxford, Cambridge and mainstream universities.

This is the third time that HESA’s findings have revealed that students who study at the University of Buckingham have the best chance of getting a job. Employers look favourably on the fact that students have taken just two years to get a degree by studying at Buckingham.

University of Buckingham Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Billington said: “We are delighted that our excellent record for graduate employment has been underlined for the third time by our coming first amongst non-specialist institutions for graduate employment prospects. This reflects both the very high regard in which Buckingham degrees are held by employers and our highly developed focus on our students, which runs throughout and indeed beyond their time with us.

“A Buckingham degree has always been valuable currency in a highly competitive job market, and this excellent result demonstrates that this continues to be the case.”
