The University is celebrating after being named number one for job prospects at the WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2015
From a poll of more than twenty thousand students across the UK, Nottingham was named the best for giving students the best employment prospects when leaving university.
Unlike other university tables, the WhatUni rankings are based entirely on the experience of students through its student reviews. The rankings are based on averages taken from thousands of reviews submitted by students and published on whatuni.com, and cover the following ten categories: Accommodation, City Life, Clubs & Societies, Courses & Lecturers, Job Prospects, Student Union, Uni Facilities, Support Services, International, and an Overall rating which counts towards the University of the Year title.
Nalayini Thambar, Director of the Careers and Employability Service at the University, said: “I am delighted that students at the University of Nottingham recognise that they have excellent job prospects; at Nottingham we are targeted by local, national and international companies of all sizes and across all sectors and our students have hundreds of opportunities to meet employers on campus each year.”
The University is consistently named as one of the most targeted universities by Britain’s leading graduate employers (The Graduate Market in 2013, 2014 and 2015, High Fliers Research), enabling students to graduate in a strong position in today’s competitive job market.
Nottingham University Business School has it’s own specialist Postgraduate Careers Service to support postgraduates with their career and professional development.
