Good University Guides places Bath in top 10 graduate prospects

18 Oct 2016

According to a major new guide, the University of Bath has been awarded 7th nationally for graduate prospects.

The guide places Bath 12th out of 128 institutions in its overall league table. The guide highlights how 84.4% of students have landed professional jobs and earn some of the highest salaries with an average starting pay of more than £26,000. Some students have moved into further study within six months of leaving.

The guide also looks at the value of the university's placement scheme, which is undertaken by two thirds of students in the private, public and non-profit sectors. These have given students the opportunity to have jobs in the real world and gain valuable and relevant experience.

The league table is calculated on nine indicators including student satisfaction, teaching quality, student experience, research, quality, investment in the campus and its facilities.

University of Bath President and Vice Chancellor Prof, Dame Glynis Breakwell said “The University is very proud of the excellent graduate job prospects we offer our students and we are delighted this is highlighted in the Good University Guide.

“It’s testament to the calibre of our students, and the excellent opportunities we provide to prepare them for careers upon graduating.

“As we celebrate the university’s 50th anniversary our strong ranking reflects our achievements in world-leading research, excellent teaching and the all-round student experience we offer.”
