Dundee University has led a Scots league table for the number of graduates who go onto professional occupations.
The study of university leavers revealed 64.5% of Dundee graduates were in professional roles within 15 months, with only three large UK institutions scoring higher.
The Graduate Outcomes survey, published by the Higher Education Statistics Authority (HESA), also put Dundee at the top of the Scottish survey – and 14th in the UK – for the proportion of graduates entering high skilled employment, at 87.4%.
Graduate Outcomes is the biggest annual social survey in the UK and captures the perspectives and current status of graduates.
The study data relates to first-degree, home-domiciled full-time study graduates who completed their course in 2017/18.
Professor Blair Grubb, vice-principal (Education) at the University said: “We are delighted by this result, which shows that Dundee is one of the top universities in the UK for students looking to work in professional and highly skilled roles after graduation.
“It is our responsibility to our students to ensure that our graduates are as ready for the labour market as possible, both in terms of the qualifications they hold and the way we have helped shape them as confident, free-thinking individuals during their time at Dundee.
“Employability is embedded into everything we do, with academia-industry connections continually being cultivated and strengthened.
“In addition, our sector-leading work in widening access means we are having a transformative impact on the lives of students from the most deprived areas of the country.”
All students who complete a higher education course in the UK are asked to take part in the Graduate Outcomes survey 15 months after they finish their studies.
