School of Arts graduates achieve 97.3 percent employment rate

Combining creativity and analytical ability with professional skills and practical experience gives Surrey undergraduate students the edge for employability.

The official Destination of Leavers Survey from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) has revealed that 97.3% of graduates from the University of Surrey’s School of Arts were in employment or education when contacted six months after graduating in 2013.

This outstanding performance reflects the School’s dedication to helping its students acquire professional skills and practical experience, especially through Surrey’s highly regarded Professional Training placements programme.

This approach combines to wonderful effect with the enhanced cultural, creative and analytical skills that students develop through their degrees in areas such as music, dance, theatre, digital arts and film.

The employment indicator across the University was 96.9%, putting Surrey in first place for graduate employability among English chartered universities.
