A high proportion of our successful graduates revisit the school to advise on course and module development, to mentor current students, or to offer work placements.
Each year the university carries out a destination survey to investigate what our graduates are doing six months' after completing their course. Last year, 85% of graduates from the University of Brighton were either employed or studying further six months after graduating.
A second destination survey is done after three-and-a-half years and the last survey, carried out in 2010 showed that:
- 96% of the university's graduates were employed or undertaking further study
- over 75% were working at graduate level, undertaking work requiring degree-level skills and understanding.
