A review has revealed that the University of Leeds has placed in the top ten in Universities in the United Kingdom for the number of graduates being targeted by ‘top employers’. This comes as great news for students at Leeds, who can take considerable confidence from this result – with top companies clearly interested in the output of this University! The review came from the highly-respected High Fliers Research – you can visit their website here. Read on for the full story of this great news!
The review – entitled ‘The Graduate Market in 2018, was produced by High Fliers Research (click here to see the full report). They used data from a wide array of sources to come up with their top ten 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 competitive. In good news, the University of Leeds placed 7th 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. Unsurprisingly, the University of Cambridge and Oxford University finished in the top ten, placing 6th and 9th respectively. It is somewhat surprising that neither topped the list, given their reputation.
