The number of jobs in the UK requiring a degree has overtaken the total of posts not needing any qualifications, an employment survey suggests.
More than a quarter of jobs are now available only to graduates, it says.
The study shows a major shift in the job market towards requiring many more skilled workers, as roles disappear for those without qualifications.
Researchers at the Institute of Education surveyed 3,000 adults across the job market.
The findings of the Skills and Employment Survey, with the latest figures for 2012, show a significant milestone in the employment landscape, with graduate jobs at a record high level and unskilled jobs at a record low.
