Discover Your Employability

Top for Jobs

University of Surrey graduates are the most employable of any chartered university in England. No other university is able to match our consistently outstanding performance in the employment league tables.

In 2008 (the latest available statistics), 96.7 per cent of our graduates entered employment or further study, compared with the national average of 91 per cent. This is the best figure of any chartered university in England.

Between 1996 and 2008, Surrey had an average unemployment rate of just 2.3 per cent, compared with the national average of 6.3 per cent. This ranks us first overall.

This means that over a 13-year period we have had the lowest average graduate unemployment rate of any UK university.

“a set of achievements, understandings and personal attributes that make individuals more likely to gain employment and be successful in their chosen occupations.”Yorke & Knight 2003

“Increasingly, it is the students’ capacity to fend for themselves in the wider world that is coming into view, their capacities to sustain themselves, to engage with the wider world, to be resilient and to prosper – not just economically – in it. We are witnessing the emergence, surely, of a curriculum for life.” Barnett and Coate 2005:119

“to facilitate the development of degree-level learning through an associated emphasis upon the reflective learning processes.”Moreland 2006
