Staffordshire University graduates are among the most employable in the country.

Graduates from Staffordshire University are among the most employable in the UK according to newly published data.

The University Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey shows that 97.5 per cent of students who graduated from Staffordshire University last summer are employed or in further study.

The DLHE national survey is carried out each year. Graduates are contacted by universities six months after completion of their studies to find out their employment status.

Staffordshire University is also celebrating a 'silver' award for its learning and teaching in the new Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) announced recently.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Liz Barnes said: “We believe our strategy to incorporate employability into all teaching modules is having a positive impact. We deliver a range of activities to support employability and enterprise including the option of a guaranteed work experience, volunteering and real world projects. By continuing to build on this activity we are confident that our employability results will remain strong.”

“Taken together, and a week before our annual Graduation Ceremonies, this confirms that the University is performing well – both in terms of our teaching excellence and what our talented graduates go on to achieve.”

“We believe this will enable us to grow and deliver on our ambitions to be a great connected regional university. We are delighted with our performance in the TEF and DLHE which gives prospective students two more reasons to choose a course at Staffordshire University.”
