When deciding on a career it is worth exploring what recent graduates have done following their degree. The University of Cumbria’s graduate employment rate remains strong. Overall university figures from our most recent destinations survey of 2017 shows that 9/10 of our graduates went into employment, further study or training.
The Destinations of Leavers of Higher Education (DLHE) survey is conducted by every UK University annually to show what their graduates are doing 6 months after graduation. Download a full breakdown of the national report for the year 17-18. (NB: Please be advised, the DHLE survey will be finishing this year, and the new Graduate Outcomes survey will be introduced.)
