We collect information from recent UK and EU Bristol graduates each year (both full and part-time) through the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey (DLHE). The Careers Service uses these statistics to create profiles of each department's graduates to give a clear picture of what happens to them once they leave university.
There were 97 known destinations in 2006/07 from a total of 105 graduates.
*'Not available for employment' usually means taking time out in order to travel for Bristol graduates, but it also includes those who are permanently unable to work, temporarily sick or unable to work, retired, or looking after the home or family.
