The research appears as the government details new standards for improving the performance of local schools and pupils at universities in England. With those new measurements, universities can more be helping their graduates find pleasant careers.

What makes well-known universities failed

The IFS study discovered that their highly selective universities accept so few people from disadvantaged backgrounds. So that their influence is far exceeded by other institutions obtaining low-income students in greater numbers. Also, it includes supporting them into higher paid careers after graduation.

One of the universities which can boost the social mobility

Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) received a high proportion of students who had obtained free school meals and increased their career chances.

Prof Colin Bailey, the principal of QMUL, stated he was “amazingly proud” of the accomplishment of staff and students.

Then Prof Bailey added that gaining students from backgrounds typically under-represented at universities, and encouraging them to succeed, is the main point of everything as a university.

The IFS estimated the common mobility rate beyond all universities in England to be 1.3%. It means the figures were “well below benchmark rate of 4.4%.

Michelle Donelan, the universities minister for England, will reveal new attempts to include higher education in giving tutoring and summer schools for all local pupils. The government also wants universities to help their alumni find skilled professions and more guides for any students at risk of dropping out.
