Students have an unrealistic set of expectations when it comes to finding work following their graduation, a survey has found. 

The Student Employability Index questioned 4,000 students at 20 universities and found more than three quarters (79 percent) expected to be in a graduate level job within six months of graduating. However government figures show that just over half (53 percent) of those who graduated in the last five years have found this set of job. 

The study showed men were more confident that women, with 83 percent of men expecting graduate-level work in six months compared to 77 percent of women. 

However students’ salary expectations were more realistic, in line with real graduate earnings.
