Top ten universities for jobs

    Imperial College London, which specialises in science, engineering, and maths, has been announced as the university with highest job prospects for graduates, with just under nine out of ten graduates in employment after six months.

    The 2016 league table (which can be seen below), produced by The Complete University Guide (CUG), uses data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) which records the number of graduates who take up employment or further study.

    In second place was St George’s, University of London, which has the benefit of being the only UK University to share a campus with a teaching hospital. On its medical course, the employment rate after six months is 100%.

    In third place was the University of Cambridge, producer of 90 Nobel Prize winners and the CUG’s number one university, closely followed by Bath University, which has been voted number one for student satisfaction two years, according to the National Student Surveys of 2013 and 2014.
