Graduates from Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln are among the most employable in the country, new figures show.

BGU has been ranked second best university in the UK and sixth among HE institutions overall in a table showing what proportion of graduates are employed or continuing to study further six months after graduating.

The latest DLHE (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey) showed that in 2011-12, 97% of Bishop Grosseteste University graduates had found a job or were continuing their studies.

Topping the list were the Royal Academy of Music (100%), Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance (98.9%) and the School of Pharmacy (98.2%).

“This is excellent news for BGU’s graduates and demonstrates that the education we provide here equips students for the marketplace,” said the Reverend Professor Peter Neil, Vice Chancellor of Bishop Grosseteste University.

“Most of our courses incorporate a professional work placement and we are confident that our graduates possess the skills and knowledge that employers are looking for.”

The DLHE data are just the latest to demonstrate Bishop Grosseteste University’s employability track record. The Which? University Guide 2012 ranked BGU first in the UK for graduate prospects and listed BGU as having the highest average graduate salary in the East Midlands.

Meanwhile The Guardian University Guide 2013 ranked the Education Studies degree course at BGU as number one in England for job prospects.

The DLHE figures were published today by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency, and can be found here.

In the latest DLHE data Bishop Grosseteste University is referred to as Bishop Grosseteste University College, which is the name used by the institution until November 2012.
