Nine out of ten Sussex 2013 graduates in work or further study
Nine of every ten students who graduated from Sussex in 2013 are in work or further study, the University’s latest survey of leavers has found, with 75% of those in work in ‘graduate level’ jobs.
And just 4% of those who left in 2013 are unemployed – under half the most recently reported national rate for recent graduates.
Over 500 of Sussex’s 2013 graduates are in continuing higher education, double the national rate of further participation, with half remaining at Sussex and half going to another higher education institution.
“Our degrees are valued and respected – and nothing says that more clearly than the willingness of our peer research-intensive universities to offer postgraduate places to those who apply with a degree from Sussex,” says Professor Clare Mackie, the University’s Pro-Vice Chancellor for Teaching and Learning.
“We hold over 300 employment and careers events for our students every year, and their hard work with our support is plainly paying off.
“This year we have seen employers actively seek out Sussex finalists at graduate careers events. Like other universities, they recognise our degrees are a mark of quality, and the figures show just what a difference that can make to those seeking well-paid, high-quality jobs once they leave university,” says Professor Mackie.
