The aim of this article is to discuss the current challenges facing higher education in terms of graduate employment, with a particular focus on the issues affecting higher education institutions offering fine art programmes of study. The government agenda on widening participation in higher education has meant that graduate employment has now become a fiercely disputed topic across the subject disciplines. More specifically, fine art has its own very particular set of issues in relation to the employment agenda and what this article aims to debate is whether institutions offering fine art courses are currently doing enough to support their graduates in understanding what their possible employment routes may be.
