Education in the media: 14 June 2017

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Higher Education, Universities

Today’s blog looks at the Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) data that was published yesterday by the Department.

Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO)

Yesterday, 13 June, we published data on Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO), which shows information on graduates one, three and five years after graduation, including graduate earnings based on what course they did and where they went to university.

This is the first time the data has been published by the Department for Education, and with there being more young people going to university than ever before, it will give them more choice over the university they attend and the subjects they take.

A Department for Education spokesperson said:

Our universities rank among the best in the world and this data confirms that having a degree can lead to rewarding and well-paid jobs.


Young people recognise this, with more of them going to university than ever before - including record numbers of 18-year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds.


We are improving the university system to benefit all students by giving them and their families the best possible information so they can make the right choices for their futures.
