All Graduate job news
Youngsters already considering their likelihood of getting a graduate job before leaving college or sixth form may want to consider Lancaster University as a future place of study.
The institution has risen substantially in the Times Good University Guide to feature in the top ten of the standings for the first time.
Oxford ranked best in the guide for the ninth year in succession, with Lancaster climbing into tenth from 23rd spot in 2009.
It was deemed to have improved in seven of eight areas, including the number of students finding a graduate job within six months of leaving.
Some 78 per cent of students either found employment or enrolled on another course within the time frame, while spending on facilities per student also increased.
Paul Marshall, executive director of the 1994 Group, said: "In a very competitive job market, deciding on which university to attend is an increasing important choice and providing good information is crucial."
Last year it was revealed that more graduates from Oxford University were choosing to complete further studies at the institution, rather than search for employment.
