Heriot-Watt has risen against UK and Scottish universities and HEIs in the latest performance indicators for graduate employment, with figures which demonstrate the attractiveness and employability of our graduates.
HESA figures for 2013/14 graduates showed that almost 95% of Heriot-Watt first degree graduates were in employment or further study within six months of graduating, an increase on the 92.6% for 2012/13.
The University rose 25 places to joint 40th out of 125 UK universities and up three places to eighth out of fifteen Scottish universities.
Acting Principal Professor Julian Jones sad, “'A practical education aligned to the needs of society is the key to the development and delivery of all of our courses.
These latest figures show that this approach and the quality of our graduates are making their mark in the labour market, good news for our graduates and good news for employers and the economy who benefit from contribution that their skills bring.”
