  1. Phoenix (AGCAS journal)

    Phoenix is the AGCAS journal, produced three times a year in February, June and October.

    The latest issue is October 2017: Student well-being

  2. What Do Graduates Do?

    Published annually, What Do Graduates Do? uses statistics drawn from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE), which is conducted by every university in the UK each year to try and establish what every graduate is doing six months after graduation. What Do Graduates Do? is the result of a close collaboration between AGCAS and Prospects, on behalf of the Higher Education Careers Service Unit (HECSU).

    Key findings from the lastest edition of What do Graduates Do? (2017) shows that the graduate unemployment rate is at its lowest since 1989.

    This document outlines the eligibility of AGCAS members to represent AGCAS on an international stage.

    Analysis of Salary Thresholds

    Balancing migrant selectivity, investment in skills and impacts on UK productivity and competitiveness
