million+ comments on graduate labour market statistics

08 Sep 2015

Official statistics on the graduate and postgraduate labour market in England published today (8 September) show high employment rates for graduates compared to non-graduates. Salaries for graduates are also much higher than for non-graduates.

Commenting on the statistics, Pam Tatlow, Chief Executive of million+, said:

“Today’s labour market statistics show that graduates and postgraduates have far higher employment rates than non-graduates. They are also much more likely to work in higher skilled jobs, and as a consequence earn better salaries than non-graduates. These figures confirm that going to university is one of the best decisions a person can take to improve their employment prospects.”
