International Students who want good jobs choose Alliance Universities

A research report from the University Alliance shows that universities like Sheffield Hallam, part of the University Alliance group, are the destination of choice for international students whose priority is getting a good job.

Alliance universities are 24 of the UK’s most innovative and enterprising universities, and their report has found that 87% of international students studying at Alliance are studying because they want to get a good job. This is compared to an average of 83% at UK Universities overall, and in higher education globally.

The report, ‘Growing Global Graduates’ brings together 24 best-practice examples, including a case study about Sheffield Hallam University’s Venture Matrix programme, which demonstrate why Alliance Universities are so effective at equipping students for long-term employability and why students are choosing to study at them.

Libby Hackett, Chief Executive of University Alliance, said:

“Graduate careers are under the spotlight like never before. Students want to ensure their degree and time at university will help set them up for a rewarding and fulfilling career in a rapidly changing world. Students recognise the value of higher education in improving their employability and the data suggest that Alliance universities attract students particularly focused on their future careers.”
