News: The results are in… University of Essex Online graduates are ahead of the curve

University of Essex Online graduates are much more likely to be in work or doing further study compared to the national average.

The highly-influential Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE) contacts graduates six months after qualifying from their higher education course, and aims to determine what type of employment or further study they are engaged in.

The results of this year’s survey show that a massive 93.7% of University of Essex Online graduates are either in work, doing further study (or both), and a further 1.4% were due to start work within a month.

With our grand total of 95.1% this puts us well above the national average of 90.8%.

Congratulations to our graduates!
