Record Number of New Graduates in Work, Research Reports


A total of 199,810 graduates were known to be working in the UK six months after graduation, up 6% from last year1 and marking the largest number of new graduate entrants to the UK labour market on record.

Prospects’ annual What do graduates do? report published today (21 October 2015) and in partnership with AGCAS, reveals the destinations of 267,735 full- and part-time first degree graduates in January 2015 – six months after they had left university.

The new figures show that the graduate jobs market has recovered from the recession. The employment rate for new graduates had increased from 75.6% in January 2014 to 76.6% in January 2015. Unemployment rates were down to levels last seen before the recession in 2008, falling a full percentage point to 6.3% (7.3%, 2014).
