Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
If you want a career in microbiology, then this is the degree to take. Although jobs are very competitive, microbiology graduates who want to leave the lab can find jobs in most industries - not just in health and hospitals, but in the food and drink, water and ecology sectors, too. Only a few hundred people take microbiology courses every year, and going on to further study is fairly common for graduates. Last year was a bit difficult for new microbiology graduates, so the figures above are a bit gloomier than you'd usually expect, but we'd hope they'd improve in the next few year.
