More Scots graduates finding work or continuing studies
The proportion has hit 95.2%, a record higher and better than the rest of the UK.
The proportion of Scottish graduates moving on to work or further study after leaving university has reached a record high, new figures have revealed.
Data published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) shows 95.2% of full-time graduates in Scotland who finished their degree last year have gone on to full employment of further study.
This is a higher percentage than in the rest of the UK, which also had a record-breaking year with an overall total of 94.3%.
The UK total is a higher proportion than at any point since comparable records began five years ago.
In 2011/12, the figure stood at 90.8% and any data before this point can not be compared, according to the HESA.
Figures from the last academic year show 94.2% of graduates in England, 94.7% in Wales and 94.4% in Northern Ireland gone on to find a job or continued their studies.
Overall, there were only 11 universities and specialist institutions in the UK that had less than 90% of its leavers going into the job market.
Three universities in England - the Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Academy of Music and Courthauld Institute of Art - and the Stranmillis University in Northern Ireland had 100% of leavers finding success in the job market.
All of the figures cover students who responded to the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey, which gathers information on what graduates have gone on to do around six months after completing their degree.
