These universities are the most targeted by the UK's top graduate employers

The annual Graduate Market report has revealed the universities targeted by the largest number of top employers in 2019. 

Despite having over 140 universities to choose from, very few top organisations, which include Amazon, Clifford Chance, J.P. Morgan and Virgin Media, have the resources to target every single one. Most choose at least 15-30 universities to focus their promotions on. 

The University of Manchester was the most targeted university this year, despite ranking 20th in the overall Times Good University Guide 2019 rankings. Conversely, Cambridge and Oxford, who rank 1st and 2nd overall, fall to 6th and 10th when it comes to being targeted by leading employers.

Check out the top 15 most targeted universities below, and you can find the full Graduate Market in 2019 report here
