UCL In Top Five for Sought-After Graduates for Employers


A review has placed University College London (UCL) 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 UCL, who will take substantial confidence from this result – with it abundantly clear that top companies are interested in the graduates from 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!


Some good news for students at UCL!


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, UCL placed 5th 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. The University of Leeds 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.




This is some great news for students at UCL! To finish so high among Universities in the United Kingdom is very impressive. It is also very motivating for students to know that top employers are actively recruiting students from UCL! Plus, finishing above the might of Oxford and Cambridge is no mean feat. It is clearly worth keeping up the hard work – with an impressive graduate job potentially available!
