A rate of 96%, published this week, has ensured that Harper Adams University continues to have the best and most consistent long-term graduate employment performance in specialist agri-food higher education.
Harper Adams is the only university in that sector to have achieved 96 per cent or higher graduate employability for the last four years. The score also makes Harper Adams the leading university for graduate employment in the Midlands.
The employment rate – or Key Performance Indicator (KPI) – is calculated following the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey of former students who graduated in the 2013/14 academic year after completing their first, full-time degrees.
Harper Adams achieved the highest response rate in the UK. With 97.8 per cent of 2014 graduates completing the survey. Therefore Harper Adams was able to achieve the country’s most accurate mapping of where former students were six months after graduating – in work, in further study or unemployed.
