UK universities leading the way with employers in China and Hong Kong

Thanks to Kirsten Roche for sharing this – good news for our Chinese students.


A recent survey of 93 employers based in Hong Kong and China by GradConnection has found that graduates from UK Universities are highly in demand. 80% of the employers surveyed said that they specifically targeted students returning from UK Universities.


Even better news for Edinburgh graduates is that the University of Edinburgh came out as the 19th most targeted University in the report. Reflecting how important it is to make sure you mention the University on your applications and mention our world rankings – currently we are number 21 in the QS World University rankings. Even more encouraging is that 99% of the employers surveyed had heard of the University of Edinburgh.


Don’t forget that the Careers Service can support you in planning for your return to China. We have lots of resources on our website Watch out, too, for our online talks about Returning Home.  Details are on MyCareerHub.
