Life after graduation
Graduates could be finding themselves back at university in a working capacity, after development of a 47-acre plot of land into a business, sports and science park by the University of Worcester is thought to be able to create 1,000 jobs.
The higher education establishment will spend £100 million renovating Grove Farm, which it bought from supermarket giant Tesco, as its third campus site.
Its second campus site has already created a similar amount of jobs.
University vice-chancellor David Green said: "This will be a great boost to jobs in Worcester and the surrounding area, and will be a great asset to the university."
The university has already helped its graduates with their careers, providing internships to former students.
Joseph Bayley, started a two-year internship as a student admissions and liaison assistant only five weeks after finishing his course at the university.
