Good news for students at Cambridge, who have clearly been doing well!


The review – entitled ‘The Graduate Market in 2018, was produced by High Fliers Research (click here to see the full report). They compiled the report based on data from an array of sources, eventually ranking Universities in terms of the most sought-after graduates from top employers. Top employers include PwC, HSBC, BP, Unilever and the NHS. These employers typically have graduate schemes that are hugely popular and highly-competitive. In good news, the University of Cambridge placed 6th in the table – testament to the strong reputation of our University.




In terms of others in the top ten, it was the University of Manchester that topped the table. The University of Birmingham came home 2nd, with the University of Warwick completing the podium positions. UCL and Durham University were among the others in the top ten. Oxford University placed 9th, though it is somewhat surprising that neither Cambridge nor Oxford topped the list. Ranking in the top ten however is still no mean feat, and is a good achievement.
