High Fliers Research

For more than two decades, High Fliers Research has been at the forefront of graduate recruitment research at the UK’s leading universities.

The UK Graduate Careers Survey is the largest and most authoritative annual survey of final year students at the UK’s leading universities. Based on face-to-face interviews with over 20,000 finalists and on-campus research groups with student jobs hunters, it is conducted by High Fliers Research on behalf of more than sixty major national and international graduate employers, in association with The Times newspaper.

Each survey gives employers an exclusive insight into the career expectations and aspirations of final year students – just weeks before they leave university – and provides a definitive record of how they have conducted their search for a graduate job.

Since its launch in 1995, the survey results have been used by more than 150 of the UK’s best-known employers to review, assess and develop their campus recruitment campaigns. Highlights from the research are regularly reported in the national press, including Financial TimesDaily TelegraphThe GuardianThe IndependentDaily Mail, and Times Higher Education.
