School of English and Languages graduates achieve 100 percent employment rate

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

The official Destination of Leavers Survey from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) has revealed that 100% of graduates from the University of Surrey’s School of English and Languages 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 English literature, creative writing, French, German, Spanish, translation and business management.

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