Graduate employability continues to rise at Birmingham

Description
The University of Birmingham has been named among the top five UK institutions for graduate employment. Data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) shows that almost 87 per cent of Birmingham's leavers were in graduate-level jobs or further education within six months of graduating. These figures from the 2014/15 academic year are the University's strongest results yet and place Birmingham fourth nationally for graduate employment.
