The full tables show the indicators for every HE institution in the UK alongside their benchmark. Summary tables showing statistics for the whole UK can be found here: www.hesa.ac.uk/pis/summary.
Overall, 90.8% of full-time first degree leavers were in employment and/or further study six months after graduating.
The statistics are based on the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey of 2011/12 graduates. The survey was changed for 2011/12 so the results are not comparable with those for previous years (more information).
Out of 163 UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) who conducted the survey, indicators for full-time first degree leavers were produced for 151, with an average rate of 91.1% in employment and/or further study. The employment rates for institutions varied from 77.4% to 100.0%.
The majority of institutions saw 90-95% of full-time first degree leavers enter employment and/or further study. 18 HEIs achieved an indicator of over 95%. The graph below shows the number of institutions achieving different levels of performance indicator percentage.
The source of these numbers is Table E1a in the Performance Indicators for 2011/12, which shows the indicator for each institution and their benchmark. This table, and equivalent ones for part-time graduates and other non-degree undergraduates, can be downloaded from www.hesa.ac.uk/pis/emp.
Also published today are indicators for research output including the number of PhDs awarded relative to an institution's academic staff costs. These indicators can be found at www.hesa.ac.uk/pis/res.
