This detailed report considers the experience of students from disadvantaged backgrounds, indicated by social class, ethnicity, age, and gender, as they leave university and the extent to which earlier disadvantages, evident when entering higher education, remain and how these may be mitigated by other factors such as entry qualifications, degree class, work experience, participation in extra-curricular activities and "job search" support. It considers their success in the labour market as measured by levels of unemployment, type of employment and earnings. Finally it looks at what institutions are doing to enhance the employability of students and focuses on initiatives such as careers education and personal development planning.
