For many, the ultimate goal of university is to improve their job prospects when they graduate.
But some universities prepare their students for the job market better than others. So where is the best place to study if you want to waltz into a job?
Times Higher Education’s (THE) annual survey has found that graduates from Cambridge, Oxford and the London School of Economics (LSE) are the most employable in the UK.
The survey sees UK employers rank universities on how ready for the working world they think their graduates are.
London universities made up seven of the top 20 ranked institutions, while St Andrews and the University of Edinburgh represented Scotland in the league tables.
But why do recruiters see some graduates as more employable than others?
According to the survey, Cambridge grads benefit from an excellent alumni network when it comes to finding a job, while the high number of world leaders and Nobel prize winners who have studied at Oxford encourage employers to continue hiring its students.
