The department provides data for the annual Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Education at a Glance Report, which provides international comparisons on the skills levels of university graduates. The report confirms that UK graduates have a strong employment rate in line with many other developed European countries. The report is publicly available.
Furthermore, the UK Employer Skills Survey 2015 found that the large majority (83%) of employers surveyed who had recruited a university leaver found their recruits to be well or very well prepared for the world of work. Overall, employers appear to be satisfied with recruits from UK universities, with only 5% of employers reporting a 'lack of required skills or competencies' and an overall lower incidence, compared to other educational leavers groups, of 'lack of skills or attitude' in general.
