Dentistry graduates have the ‘best chance of securing a job’

Dentistry students have a 99% chance of securing a job when they graduate.

This flies in the face of the current trend with one in four graduates from some universities left unemployed after finishing their degrees last summer.

New research reveals that almost 25,000 students across the country have been left without a job after finishing their courses following a squeeze on graduate vacancies.

According to the Association of Graduate Recruiters, graduate vacancies dropped by 8.9% last year and are predicted to fall by nearly 7% this year.

But specialist subjects were found to give students the best chance of finding work, with 99% of medicine, dentistry and veterinary science students finding work.

The Daily Telegraph reports that just one in 20 University of Cambridge graduates was left unemployed last summer, while 93% of graduates from the University of Oxford and University of Nottingham were able to find work.

But across the UK, more than one in 10 students who left university last summer failed to find work after six months – the highest unemployment rate for 10 years.
