Student Employability Index 2014: Part One

Author: Aaron PorterPublished: 3rd April 2014

The ‘Student Employability Index 2014’ surveyed over 4000 students from 20 UK institutions (200 students from each university) and found significant variance in opportunities for work experience across subject areas. As is to be expected students studying subjects aligned to medicine, veterinary sciences and education are much more likely to undertake work experience than others but there is variation among other subjects too with just 19% of history students taking up a placement compared to 31% of those studying engineering.
