Life after graduation
The vice-chancellor of the University of Plymouth has said that its leavers will go on to succeed in graduate jobs.
Addressing the students at a graduation ceremony on The Hoe on Sunday (September 20th), Professor Wendy Purcell said that the next stage for them will be full of "exciting new possibilities", according to the Herald.
Ms Purcell claimed that the university was helping to produce a generation of talent which will transform the economic face of the graduate job market.
She explained: "By fostering an inclusive culture which embraces citizenship and scholarship, we are confident that they graduate with the skills and qualities to go out and make a difference to society."
Research by the Times recently suggested that investment banks in London are planning a 20 per cent increase in graduate recruitment numbers for 2010 and will be arriving on campuses as students return to university this month.
