Finding a job after postgraduate study in Oxford
Oxford, the 'city of dreaming spires', is best known for its namesake university. And indeed, one in five of its inhabitants are students, so fresh graduates are likely to feel right at home.
The printing and publishing industries have been established since the 1920s. Oxford University Press, Elsevier Science and Wiley Blackwell are just some of the many publishers located in the Oxfordshire region.
The city's international appeal makes for a busy tourism and hospitality industry while Oxford's business parks host over 40 technical and scientific companies such as Vodafone and BT. Manufacturing is another important sector with the BMW Mini plant and a Harley Davidson office in the city.
