Graduate Employment

We are in the top 25 in the world for our reputation with employers (QS World University Rankings 2016/17) and were ranked as the first most targeted university nationally by the UK’s top 100 graduate employers (The Graduate Market in 2017, High Fliers Research Ltd.). Feedback from employers emphasises that, as well as seeing Warwick graduates as motivated and knowledgeable, employers value their broad range of interests outside of their academic studies.

The average salary of Warwick’s 2015 graduates six months after finishing their degree was £25,700, compared to a national average of £21,500, placing us in the top ten among UK universities (The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). 93.5% of Warwick’s 2015 graduates were working, undertaking further study, or working and studying. Others choose to develop their early careers through voluntary work, or take time out to travel.

80%* of our 2015 graduates entered either professional or managerial jobs, or graduate-level study

Student Careers and Skills

We want our students to become successful scholars and employable graduates, so we provide 1:1 advice,
skills workshops tailored to undergraduate, Master’s and research students, access to job vacancies
and opportunities to meet employers on campus. We continue offering careers support after graduation.

We offer innovative ways to gain experience – students can get involved in our active volunteering programme, Warwick Volunteers; apply for undergraduate research bursaries; and access thousands of on- and offcampus work experience opportunities, using our online vacancy portal, myAdvantage.

We also help students pull together their experiences and tell their unique story with confidence in applications and interviews, assisted by our online MyPortfolio tool.
