Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Things are improving - slowly - for biology graduates, so don't get too worried about the unemployment stats above, as they are normally more encouraging. If you want a career in biology research – and a lot of biology students do - you'll need to take a doctorate, so give some thought as to where you might do it and how you might fund it (the government still funds doctorates for good students). If you think you only want to do a first degree for now, there are jobs for biologists in science and clinical labs and in the health, food and water industries. But you can actually get all sorts of jobs with a biology degree – last year’s biology graduates got jobs in sectors ranging from PR to accountancy.

Only a small number of students study courses within this catch-all subject area, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at any stats. Marketing and PR were the most likely jobs for graduates from these courses, but it's sensible to go on open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from the course, and what previous graduates did.
