If you go to any of these Russell Group unis then you’re most likely to end up unemployed

Merry Christmas x


Yeah yeah, the job market is a mess and it’s impossible to get a job as it is in Covid times. But what’s the situation like for grads from your uni?

Stats from HESA, based on 2018/19 graduates 15 months after they leave uni, show just how likely your uni is to get you a job.

Glasgow and Queen Mary, the two Russell Group uni’s everyone forgets about, are the most likely to leave grads unemployed, with roughly eight per cent ending up without a job or further study.

Oxford and Imperial were the bottom on the list – meaning they have the lowest unemployment rates out of all the Russell Group uni’s. Not entirely shocking though, is it? Although Cambridge are gutted they didn’t make the cut.
