Most graduates have no regrets about choosing to go
to university rather than taking a job straight away, according to
a new study.
The Guardian's Grad Facts 2008 survey polled graduates from the
Russell group of universities - which includes Oxbridge, Imperial
College London and Manchester - as well as graduates from newer,
It discovered that 91 per cent of Russell group graduates were
happy with their decision to enter into further education, as were
82 per cent of post-92 university graduates.
However, 22 per cent of respondents from the post-92 university
group said they regretted their choice of degree programme,
compared to 20 per cent of the Russell group.
Dr Wendy Piatt, the director general of the Russell group, said the
results echoed last year's findings.
"The National Student Survey in 2007 showed that the Russell group
has higher levels of student satisfaction overall compared to the
sector as a whole."
The Grad Facts survey examines the views, attitudes and career
hopes of recent graduates.
