Graduation

It has been revealed by the 2017 Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey that 95% of our ‘Class of 2016’ students were in employment or postgraduate education within 6 months of completing their degree. These results out-perform the sector average for Geography and Earth Sciences, and illustrate our commitment to producing graduates with the necessary knowledge and skillsets to take into the workplace – a vital statistic to know when choosing where to study!

Here at DGES we want our students to go on and become everything that they ever wanted to be. That's why we ensure that during your time with us every effort is made to help you get the skills to do it. Through the Tutorial programme we develop career awareness and all our courses help students develop the skills needed in the modern workplace. Individual enterprise, group discussion and leadership skills are encouraged through a range of opportunities provided in lecture, seminar, tutorial, library, field and practical settings. These allow each student to realise their full potential.
