With students getting their higher education results, we asked them, what's next?

We compared how student views changed from when they started uni through to graduation. Over 93% feel that they are now equipped, ready, and able to have a more fulfilling work career as a result of their uni experience.

57% of students rate getting a job as their top priority after uni (up 12% from 2017), and with nearly 60% expecting to earn between £20k-30k, confidence is high on kick starting their careers. When asked, nearly 60% of final year students were actively looking for a graduate job from the Christmas/New Year period, which is over six months away from completing their degrees. This shows many students are aggressively pursuing the future they want early.
