Here are the 10 best UK universities for graduate prospects in 2021

St George's, University of London is the best university for graduate prospects in 2021.

Every year The Complete University Guide publishes its University League Tables, ranking UK universities according to ten key criteria, such as student satisfaction, degree completion and research quality. Universities are scored against each criteria and are also given an overall score out of 1000.

While the University of Cambridge was crowned the best university overall, the top spot for graduate prospects went to St George's, University of London.

To establish which universities are best for graduate prospects, The Complete University Guide looked at the number of graduates from each university who take up employment or further study, divided by the total number of graduates with a known destination. The universities were then scored out of 100. 

The top ten universities in the UK for graduate prospects are listed below, and you can find the full ranking here.
