Higher education and beyond: Outcomes from full-time first degree study

The data for the report have been taken from five cohorts of UK-domiciled, young, full-time first degree students (starting in academic years 2002-03 to 2006-07) who have been tracked through higher education (HE) and beyond using administrative data.

Four possible outcomes of HE are examined:

• achieving a degree;
• achieving a first or upper second class degree;
• achieving a degree and continuing to employment or further study;
• achieving a degree and continuing to graduate employment (as opposed to any employment) or further study.

The percentage who achieved a degree increased from 81.5 per cent of the 2002-03 cohort to 82.3 per cent of the 2006-07 cohort, and the percentage who achieved a first or upper second class degree increased from 49.6 per cent for the 2002-03 cohort to 53.3 per cent for the 2006-07 cohort.

There was an overall decrease in the percentage who achieved a degree and continued to employment or further study, from 72.0 per cent of the 2002-03 cohort to 71.4 per cent of the 2006-07 cohort. A similar decrease was seen in the percentage who qualified with a degree and continued to graduate employment or further study, from 48.1 per cent of the 2002-03 cohort to 47.8 per cent of the 2006-07 cohort.
