Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Around 1,150 graduates received classics degrees in 2012 and more than a quarter of those went on to further study, usually a Masters, and often in a different subject such as law, history or archaeology. Those who did go into work tended to find jobs in London or the South East, and be working in education, marketing and advertising or the finance industry. Personal contacts were particularly important for these graduates in finding their first job, so good networks may help your job search when the time comes.
