The existence of a ‘brain drain’ of graduate labour from Wales has long been a focus of debate (for example, Drinkwater and Blackaby, 2004, c.f. Fevre, 2004). Welsh and English higher education and labour markets are interconnected (for example, Rees and Taylor, 2006) and Wales is a ‘loser’ region generating more undergraduates than it recruits recent graduates into employment (Hoare and Corver, 2009). This research seeks to deepen understanding by investigating the nature and scale of graduate flows to and from Wales.
