Graduate Employability Results

97.5% of students who graduated from Staffordshire University last summer are employed or in further study.

We are delighted to announce that Staffordshire University has significantly improved its performance in the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

Our status as No. 1 for employability demonstrates our commitment to employability nationally and in the local area.

How does the DLHE survey work?

  1. DLHE is a national survey that captures destinations of graduates that has recently qualified from any university or HE college in the UK.
  2. Graduates provide information about what they are doing six months after their graduation.
  3. The data is analysed and each institution is ranked based on its performance.

What does this mean for your future?

Our commitment to supporting our students into successful careers is integral to everything we offer. The opportunities to complete work experience and get involved with real-world projects are endless. As a result, you'll gain the knowledge, understanding, skills and experience to accelerate your career after university.


Studying at Staffordshire University you'll benefit from our strong links with employers - through guest lectures and opportunities to arrange work placements.
