University of Aberdeen in top 10 for graduate employability

The University of Aberdeen has been named one of the top 10 universities in the UK for graduate employability by the Telegraph. The league table is based on the proportion of 2013/14 graduates entering employment or further study within six months.

Talking about this achievement, Professor Peter McGeorge, Vice Principal for Learning & Teaching said: “We’re delighted that so many of our graduates have successfully moved into work or further study so soon after leaving university.  It clearly reflects the very high quality of our students, their learning, our careers service, and the close relationships we have with employers across a wide range of business and industry."

“Our students and graduates are encouraged to take advantage of the University’s careers service which helps them explore their options by offering mentoring and facilitating skills development through initiatives such as work placements. Ensuring this is an innovative and respected source of advice and support is hugely important to us and we’re constantly enhancing this service to support the full University of Aberdeen community.”
