Graduates in work
The tables and charts on this page provide information on graduates from higher education. Some information is taken from our Higher Education Graduate Outcomes Statistics: UK, 2017/18 Statistical Bulletin.
All tables and charts include a link underneath allowing you to download the data you see on screen, including filters, and will also include a link to download the complete source data as a machine-readable csv file.
Note: HESA has identified that just over 150,000 graduate responses to the 'main reason for undertaking their job or activity' questions were previously inadvertently excluded from the chart ‘Graduates in UK work by main reason for taking the job and skill group (OC4)’ where the graduate had only selected one option from the multiple choice ‘Why did you decide to undertake your work or activity?’. Chart 4 was updated on 4 September 2020 to ensure maximum coverage of this data.
