London Metropolitan University

London Metropolitan University has jumped nine places in the Destination of Leavers of Higher Education survey, published today by the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

It’s the biggest rise in employment performance in the country, and follows a drive for employability at the University.

Just under 89% of London Met graduates are in full-time employment or further study six months after leaving university, the results show. The score is the highest in London Met's history and highlights how the University provides students with the skills they need to excel in their chosen careers.

Professor John Raftery, Vice Chancellor of London Met, said: “This is wonderful news for our students and graduates, and shows that we are making good progress as a University. The survey results show that our recent focus on employability – such as building employment skills into our entire curriculum – is paying off for our students.

“Last year we launched our first Graduate Internship Scheme and continue to work closely with industry to enrich our student experience and give students the skills they need to be attractive prospects for employers.

“Staff in the London Met community are intensely focused on improving the outcomes for our students, and giving London Met graduates the best possible chance in the global jobs market.
“We are soon to publish our new Strategic Plan which outlines even more employability initiatives for our students, including guaranteed accredited employment-based learning opportunities for all students.”
