Interesting study looking at the motivations and aspirations of current students, 13% of whom were UoE students according to KPMG who commissioned it. It picks up issues of generation, gender and social mobility in relation to students thinking  about their futures.  Strongest message is try not to be scared to make a career decision. The ideal role might not be the first one you have but you can work towards it.

They offer other key messages for undergraduates as well as recommendations for universities and careers services around creating a learning environment with a real focus on  employability and continuing to bridge the gap between university and employment through collaboration.
