We’ve analysed the levels of overall satisfaction against other universities offering this subject to be able to say whether this figure is high, typical or low. <br /><br /><strong>Tip</strong>: this rating offers you a glimpse into what students on the ground think about things such as the quality of facilities and teaching on the course. <a href="/advice/what-do-student-satisfaction-scores-really-tell-you"><em>What do student satisfaction scores tell you?</em></a>
Average graduate salary MEDIUM£19.4k
This is the average salary graduates were earning six months after leaving this university according to the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. We’ve analysed scores across the board to be able to say whether this figure is high, medium or low compared to other institutions.<br/><br/>Tip: it’s best to take this figure with a pinch of salt when looking at it for all graduates at this university. Firstly, it’s measured only six months after someone leaves uni, and the course you choose will have a big bearing on how much you’ll earn.<br/><br/><a href="/advice/what-do-graduate-employment-figures-really-tell-you"><em>More on what graduate employment stats really tell you</em></a>
% of graduates in work or further study MEDIUM93%
This tells you what graduates are up to six months after leaving this university according to the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, in particular whether they’re working or in further study. We’ve analysed scores across the board to be able to say whether this figure is high, typical or low compared to other institutions.<br/><br/><strong>Tip:</strong> see this as a short-term snapshot of life after this university rather than cast-iron guarantee of long-term prospects. The survey is carried out just six months after a student graduates, and the number will differ according to the specific degree you choose. <br><br> <a href="/advice/what-do-graduate-employment-figures-really-tell-you"><em>what graduate employments stats really tell you.</em></a>

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you. More on what university league tables really tell you.
