Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The statistics here primarily reflect the prospects for forensic science graduates, as the largest group of students to study a forensic and archaeological science. While there are not a lot of jobs available in forensics itself just at the moment, reflected in the overall unemployment rates for forensic science graduates, there are still jobs for graduates from these subjects. Last year's graduates went into analysis work in labs, technician roles and general research, and for those looking a little wider, IT and management also employed forensics graduates. This is also a good subject for those wanting to work for the police, and if you do, it’s sometimes possible to get sponsorship, so that can be an option to fund your studies and get some relevant – and challenging - experience.

Information services covers a broad range of degree options including librarianship and museum studies, which are usually only taken by a small number of students. These areas tend to be much more popular at postgraduate level - and with a lot of competition for jobs in libraries and museums, most of these jobs go to holders of Masters qualifications. However, many industries are increasingly looking for professionals skilled in managing data and information - so there are related jobs to be had with just a first degree.
