How is the cost of living crisis impacting student and graduate choices?






In our webinar on 7 September 2023 we explored how the cost-of-living crisis continues to impact graduate career choices, and whether the situation has got better or worse since we last asked students about it in December 2022, comparing last years' findings with insights from a recent snap survey. We drew on insights from within our Cibyl Graduate UK 2023 research, which captured the views of 66,181 respondents from 160 + UK institutions.

We looked at a number of areas including:

  • YoY changes to the impacts of cost-of-living to the career decisions students and graduates are making
  • How their job role or sector choices have changed
  • Reward and support expectations
  • The correlation of where students are from, where they study, and where they want to work
  • How financial challenges differ between student groups
