|In fact, the Times Good University Guide lists Cambridge and Oxford
as the best universities in the country, but they only came fourth and
third respectively in terms of graduate employment. Moreover, Nottingham
only came 24th in Times's guide and Manchester University came 25th,
yet is ranked second for graduate employment.
Dr Paul Greatix,
the registrar at Nottingham University, called the news "terrific" and
said the research shows that the university is providing employers with
the talent they need.
"It reflects continuing investment in the
student experience at Nottingham, and the focus we have on providing the
best possible support for students as they prepare for a challenging
job market," he said. "It's also a testament to the fantastic work of
our academic staff and professional services, and the calibre of our
students," reports independent.co.uk.
Tammy Goldfield, from
Manchester University's career service, added that the graduate job
market appears to be recovering, as last academic year the university
saw the amount of advertised vacancies increase by seven per cent.
