Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Music is a popular degree subject and a little over 4,600 degrees were awarded to UK graduates in 2012. Most were working after six months – but postgraduate study (usually continuing with music) is quite common and a lot of graduates go into music teaching, often as freelance or travelling music teachers of particular instruments. Obviously, many music graduates get work as musicians as well, or work as sound recordists and in similar technical roles. Music is important in advertising and so a lot of graduates go into this industry and management is also a popular job role for music graduates. Because a lot of musician work is temporary or freelance, the most common way for new graduates to get jobs in music is through their own contacts, so learning how to make good use of networks and contacts might help in your career.
