About us

Graduate employability

The University of Surrey has an outstanding record for graduate employability.

95 per cent graduate employment

Figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) reveal that 95.6 per cent of Surrey’s 2015 graduates were in work (or further education) six months after they graduated.

On average, our graduate employment rate over the past five years is 95 per cent.

Professional Training placements

Our consistently high placing in the HESA figures is a result of our relentless focus on graduate employability and the success of our Professional Training placements, which we pioneered 60 years ago and in which we continue to be a world leader today.

Surrey is highly unusual in offering Professional Training placement opportunities to almost all of its undergraduates, regardless of their degree subject. Over the past five years, more than 2,300 partner organisations have worked with us to give our students valuable work placements in the UK and abroad.
