Computing is one of the largest subject areas in Higher Education, and is taught in almost every institution, graduating around 9,000 students every year. Yet Computing graduates are recorded as having the highest unemployment rates for all subjects, six months after graduation.
Of course, institutions are not all the same. They do not have similar intakes, missions or expectations, and demonstrate a wide range of approaches to curriculum, student experience and employability. No single piece of practice represents “success”: everything works somewhere.
