To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to encourage universities to advertise (1) subject drop-out, and (2) employment, rates for courses.
25 July 2022
Students should be made fully aware of subject completion rates and graduate outcomes data, so that they can make meaningful decisions about what course to take and where to study.
On 1 July 2022, the department published guidance asking higher education providers to improve the transparency and consistency of advertising at provider and subject level. Published guidance is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/transparency-in-advertising-for-higher-education-providers.
We expect that providers will incorporate this data into any newly commissioned advertising, as it is right that applicants are made aware of it before they commit to applying for a particular course or institution.
