What do Brunel graduates do?

Graduate destinations 2013-2014

As from 1 August 2014 Brunel underwent an ambitious transformational change project, which radically reorganised the structure of the academic Schools. The statistics published here do not reflect that change. They are based on our old School structure and the courses that fell within those Schools as seen on the left of the page.

The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey provides a snapshot of graduate activity six months after completing their studies. This information is compiled by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) who report national outcomes and university league tables.

One of the tables produced is an employment indicator table which takes the base population of full time, first degree home leavers in employment, further study or looking for work. Based on this criteria Brunel’s employment indicator for 2013/4 is 91.7%.

The following statistics provide a more detailed breakdown of graduate activity based on the total First Degree home leaver population whose employment circumstances are listed below.

Due to the high number of students in the School of Health Sciences and Social Care and the School of Sport and Education, a large proportion of Brunel graduates work in the public sector and as a result in 2013/4, the largest recruiters of our First Degree and Postgraduates were:

  • Public Administration – 93 Brunel graduates were working in central and local government within local councils and the civil service
  • Education – 341 Brunel graduates were working in education (including 26 at Brunel University)
  • NHS – 147 Brunel graduates were working in hospitals and Primary Care Trusts
  • Social Work – 50 Brunel graduates were working within social service departments

This represents 36% of the total graduate population.

Many other Brunel graduates went to work in commercial industry for large blue-chip multinational companies and in 2013/4 other recruiters of our graduates were:
