Careers and employability

From day one, we want our students to develop the skills and attitude they need to help them get the jobs they want.

The latest results from the annual Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey reported that 95.8 per cent of our graduates were in work or further study six months after graduating – which is above the national average of 93.2 per cent.

Our graduates go on to do remarkable things – they work at world-leading companies, create Oscar-winning movies, win Emmy awards for spectacular 3D imagery, as well as design shoes for the Duchess of Cambridge and clothes for Lady Gaga and Beyoncé.

We also fosters an entrepreneurial spirit, with influential magazine The Economist reporting that the university and its graduates were playing a vital role in helping Leicester match London for new business success.

You can take advantage of our initiatives such as Frontrunners, Unitemps and Graduate Champions. You are also entitled to careers support for life and have access to MyGateway, our online one-stop-shop for professional planning and job hunting.
