Recent figures show that students from Scottish universities have the best job prospects in the UK.
A report by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (Hesa) found more than 95 per cent of Scottish graduates had either secured a job or gone into further study six months after they left in 2015.
Scotland is home to 15 universities, with the oldest being founded in 1418 in St Andrews, so students from Scotland, UK wide and internationally have a wide choice of establishments from which to select their desired course.
Scottish universities have made employability a priority of their work with a renewed focus on careers advice, a revamping of courses to include the development of skills, working closely with employers in the design and delivery of courses and the creation of work placements.
The figures were also published a week after it emerged that Scottish university graduates have the best average starting salaries in the UK and are more likely to secure professional jobs.
The growth in numbers of students applying to Scottish universities and their status has resulted in increased investment into student accommodation, with the standard moving well away from claustrophobic bed sits and cold, damp flats which many graduates will recall from their student days.
