What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This group covers a very wide range of complementary therapies and other wellbeing-related courses, with osteopathy and chiropractic courses the most common. Although many graduates go into therapy roles, with self-employment common, we'd suggest heading to university and college open days to find out more from tutors about the type of roles graduates typically go on to do - especially as postgraduate study is quite common.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

One of the fastest growing subjects in the country, the number of sports science graduates went from under 3,000 in 2003 to over 10,000 in 2013. Numbers have fallen slightly since 2015, but we still have over 9,000 graduates in the subject. However, the good news is the country's appetite for good health and fitness - and the adaptability of graduates in the subject - means that sports science grads are less likely than average to be out of work. Sports science graduates, not surprisingly, tend to get jobs in sport, fitness and health - coaching and teaching especially - but they're found all over the economy. Management and business are also popular options for graduates from this subject — and sports science graduates are particularly found where drive, determination and physical fitness are an advantage.

What about your long term prospects?
