What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Courses like this are more usually taken at postgraduate level - very few students take one of these degrees as a first degree. There isn't a great deal of reliable information on the employment prospects for these graduates so bear that in mind when you review the stats. Students tend to go on to further study or pursue jobs within the healthcare sector, but it might be a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates from your chosen subject went on to do.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
