Birmingham City University graduates are the most employable of all Birmingham higher education institutions, after new figures published on Thursday 5 July showed that 97.4% of its 2017 graduates were in employment or further study six months after graduating.
The figures from the Higher Education Statistics Authority put Birmingham City University 16th nationally and well ahead of the sector average of 94.6%.
The result represents a 5.6% increase on Birmingham City University’s figures for the previous year.
Professor Philip Plowden, Vice-Chancellor at Birmingham City University, welcomed the news, saying:
“This exceptional result is down to a host of developments at the University, including the practice based learning opportunities we give our students to work directly with employers, and our Graduate + skills programme which prepares students for the world of work.
“It is also directly attributable to the intense hard work of our staff and of course our students who make the most of all the opportunities we provide.”
