Graduates contemplate further study

Posted on 15th June 2009 by Youth

We carried out some research about what students hope to go on to do after they complete their studies. The results show that half of this year’s undergraduates are seriously considering postgraduate study.

The research was covered in an article on the Ri5 website. The article starts:

New research from Opinionpanel reveals that half of this year’s crop of undergraduates are seriously considering postgraduate study as their next move.

The research is based on the findings of an online survey conducted during May with just over 1,000 full-time students at 133  universities (all of them members of ‘The Student Panel’, Opinionpanel’s proprietary online panel).

It found that almost a quarter (24%) of final-year students had already applied to do postgraduate studies, and that a further quarter (26%) were likely to do so (- 12% “very likely” and 14% “quite likely”). The proportion of finalists who had already applied to do further postgraduate studies was even higher at Russell Group and other ‘old’ universities, but noticeably lower at ‘new’ universities.
