Graduate Employability

Newcastle University graduates have one of the best records for graduate employability in the UK.

Reputation for excellence

94% of our 2020/21 graduates entered employment or further study within 15 months of graduating. The quality of our degrees, our focus on transferrable skills and our reputation with employers puts us in the top 30 for Graduate Prospects (across Graduate Outcomes measures in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, and The Complete University Guide).

Careers support

Our Careers Service is one of the most innovative in the UK. We offer our students:

  • one-to-one sessions with a professional careers adviser
  • drop-in CV clinics
  • unique online resources
  • a huge range of skills development workshops

Our support helps students in a challenging job market. The Careers Service provide workshops tailored to specific degrees to maximise the chances of our students landing the dream job.

Graduates of Newcastle benefit from careers support for three years after graduation as well as business start-up support on an on-going basis.
