Roehampton University is celebrating after new figures revealed 92 per cent of first degree graduates were in work or study, six months after graduation.

The data, released by the Higher Education Statistics Agency, is higher than many other universities in the capital including LSE and Goldsmiths College.

Julie Powell, head of employability and entrepreneurship at the university, said: “It’s very heartening for people graduating later this month to know they will be in such a good position.

“The University of Roehampton is proud to prepare students to be responsible and confident people who are the type of graduates employers want to recruit, and this survey shows we’re clearly doing a good job for our students.”
