Job fears grow for UK graduates

One in three graduates fear they will still be out of work in six months' time as job competition remains high, according to a new report.

A survey of recent graduates also showed that most would not have been able to study at university if tuition fees had been twice their current level.

Two-thirds of almost 500 graduates questioned by Totaljobs.com believed they could not have afforded fees if they were doubled to £6,000.

A third of graduates were drawing Jobseeker's Allowance, with many claiming benefits for at least six months.
