Escape Studios Rises to the Top 6% for Graduate Employment
The latest UK data on 2020/2021 graduates from the Higher Education Statistics Agency reveals Escape Studios has risen from the top 10% of institutions for full-time graduate employment to sit within the top 6%. The data also disclosed 90% of all respondents were in full time employment or further study 15 months after finishing their studies. Delving deeper into the data 86.7%* of respondents were in highly skilled employment.
Dr Ian Palmer, Principal of Escape Studios, said: “We’re delighted to see that our focus on preparing our students for their future careers continues to be successful. It’s a core part of our mission and these results are testament to the efforts put into this area by both staff and of course the students themselves. We never take this for granted and we’ll continue to work closely with our industry partners to help ensure the next generation of graduates are even better prepared.”
The Higher Education Statistics Agency acknowledges that the graduates of 2020/2021 were studying during challenging times, with Heidi Fraser Kraus (Chief Executive of HESA’s parent company) saying:
“The results of the latest Graduate Outcomes survey provide valuable insight into the progress of graduates who left university or college to enter a world still reeling from COVID-19. While the employment and salary statistics show graduates doing well, their reflections on their own priorities and wellbeing are particularly illuminating. This survey is a huge challenge to undertake each year, and I'd like to thank all the graduates who complete it. Their contributions really do benefit future cohorts of students.”
