A new Europe-wide study has found that a number of British graduates believe the skills they learned at university are being under-used in their jobs.
The European Commission report found that while a quarter of graduates on the continent feel this way, the problem is particularly pronounced in the UK and southern Europe, according to University World News.
It also looked at some of the new challenges that face graduates in the labour market.
Three main issues were identified: increasing volatility of labour market processes, increasing emphasis on education and training and increasing internationalisation.
The study suggested that to meet these new demands, graduates must now have greater flexibility and a wider range of skills.
In response to this, universities are increasingly looking to equip their students with the proficiencies needed for the world of work.
