Postgraduate study and employability

Friday, 19 May 2017

Whilst most attention has focussed on undergraduates’ employability and labour market progress, the perceived impact of both research and taught post-graduate study on capability and employment outcomes has been growing. This event will give an overview of issues, emerging data and some key initiatives, drawing especially but not solely on evidence from Scotland.

Roundtable discussions (in groups)

·  To what extent are the challenges and opportunities for research and taught postgraduates inherently different from each other and undergraduates? Are different strategies and practices required? Or does it all come back to employer engagement and work-based learning?
·  How influential are subject differences and how do they interact with different modes of study to create specific opportunities and challenges? E.g. creative sector
·  What further research is necessary to understand what works and what doesn’t for post graduates?  How can we do it?

 This is event is organised in collaboration with University of Edinburgh Business School (Contact - Dr. Fumi Kitagawa -
