The article presents a study on graduate aspirations in Great Britain. Almost 650 final-year students from three universities completed a postal questionnaire in 2007 asking about their plans for the future. The research found five factors that make a city attractive to new graduates, which include affordable housing, good public transport, and a good standard of healthcare. The study indicated that a city must also provide genuine graduate-level opportunities, decent pay and employers with the right qualities in order to retain its graduates.
