Graduate Market Trends : The HECSU journal

Logo: GMT

Graduate Market Trends (GMT) is HECSU's quarterly journal. It provides high quality information about contemporary debates in higher education, graduate employment and career learning.


Latest edition: Spring 2014

The spring edition of GMT focusses on postgraduate study, from application to graduate outcomes in the UK and beyond. We interviewed Dr Sue Rigby about the information needs of postgraduate applicants. Research articles include an introduction to new research into the future of STEM taught postgraduate study in the UK, as well as an investigation into the different outcomes of full-time and part-time Masters graduates in the UK. Bruce Guthrie of Graduate Careers Australia looks at the outcomes of postgraduate students from Australian institutions. The final article may be of particular interest to postgraduate admissions and details the work of the Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD) service, which aims to detect and combat degree fraud in the UK.
