What do Aberdeen Graduates do? (by Academic School)

These pie charts give an overview of the destinations of known honours graduates in each academic School and the disciplines within each School as well as examples of job titles, employers and courses. The information is taken from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey which is conducted at all institutions roughly six months after graduation. We have included pie charts from two years to allow you to compare. (Please note that in some disciplines more than one year's data was aggregated.)
