White paper

“We will radically improve and expand the information available to prospective students, making available much more information about individual courses […] and graduate employment prospects [...] including on employment and earnings outcomes...”


“To ensure our graduates have the extra dimension in order to make them the stand out choice for employers”

  • engage the majority of students as opposed to the current minority;
  • engage with students as early as possible in their undergraduate careers;
  • ensure students participate in only one main intervention to avoid the current situation of a minority of keen students monopolising the places on the majority of interventions;
  • ensure that each intervention is accompanied by before and after support to ensure that students are appropriately prepared and effectively followed up;
  • make access to as many opportunities as possible a competitive process (to identify best candidates and simulate selection processes – those unsuccessful can be signposted to alternatives.
