Graduates gain professional roles to be proud of

Over 94% of Loughborough graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduating from the University according to the latest Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey. 

And of those graduates in full-time employment, 90% are in managerial or professional positions, putting Loughborough well above the national average. 

Loughborough University has a well-earned reputation for graduate recruitment and the quality of its students. Each year its Careers and Employability Centre (CEC) hosts a wide range of employer events and interactions with students, including the UK’s biggest one-day university careers fair which typically attracts over 6,000 students and close to 200 exhibitors. 

Automotive Materials student Richard Lee graduated in 2014 and immediately secured a job with FORTUNE 500 engineering procuring and contracting company Fluor after seeing them at the University's Graduate Recruitment and Placement Fair. He said: "I used the careers and employability centre throughout my time at Loughborough, from helping with my CV to applying for industrial placement and graduate jobs. I highly recommend every student pays them a visit for career and application advice."
