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: Winter 2014

This edition of GMT features research from HECSU on the regional differences in university admissions in England. An article by the Higher Education Academy introduces a framework to help universities reflect on and further develop their approach to employability. Final year PhD student, Daria Luchinskaya uses qualitative interviews to further investigate graduates use of skills and knowledge gained from their degrees in their jobs. Holly Higgins introduces her PhD study exploring the nature of graduate work. The Employment Review from the 2013 edition of What do graduates do? is included in this edition. Finally, we have a perspective piece from Robert Minton-Taylor discussing the issues surrounding unpaid internships.
