Responding to the announcement, Professor
Dave Phoenix, Vice-Chancellor of London South Bank University (LSBU) and Chair of the leading
university think tank million+ said: “The official statistics from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey confirm that studying for a degree is one of the best decisions that
anyone can make if they want to get a job. They show that for the vast majority
of students going to university has prepared them well for their future
"These figures should be seen as encouragement to anyone thinking
about taking that next step into higher education and I hope those considering
their options will ensure they have spoken to their local university to see
what opportunities exist for 2016 or 2017 entry."
The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey revealed a huge increase in the number of LSBU students securing professional roles after graduating.
Recent figures show that 75% of LSBU graduates who responded were in a professional and/or managerial role just six months after graduating. The figure represents almost a 27% increase from the previous year's results.
Graduates from LSBU also benefited from generous salaries, with an average of £28,900 per year.
