An important indicator of performance with regard to graduate employment is the graduate level job indicator. Universities use the HESA SOC2010 coding system to identify those in graduate level jobs. This has replaced the Elias & Purcell (2004) method for defining graduate level occupations and is intended to provide a stronger coding system. Further details of this are shown in the Appendices tab. This indicator is used in calculations that go towards producing league tables and is therefore a useful area for analysis. The table below shows the proportion of Sussex UK UG first degree leavers whose job is classified as graduate level.
