STEM and research careers
STEM graduates in non-STEM jobs (for BIS, 2010-11)
CRAC led a major BIS-funded study to explain why many STEM graduates do not enter careers related to their degree subject, as BIS believed many are ‘lost' from the pipeline to the STEM labour market at graduation. Our multi-faceted study, supported by NICEC and the CIHE, resulted in over 10,000 student survey responses, more than 600 interviews with graduates and significant interaction with 150 employers, many in STEM sectors. The report has provided a substantial evidence base for those working on STEM skills and careers.
