What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

As only a small number of students take courses in this subject area, there isn't much information on what graduates do when they finish, so bear that in mind when you review any stats. Management, finance and business roles are common, but it's a good idea to ask tutors what previous graduates taking specific courses went on to do when you're at an open day.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is a small, general category covering several different subject areas - so bear that in mind when you look at any stats. The most common courses covered here are in translation, with just 55 students graduating in translation degrees in 2015. The arts were the most likely job sector for graduates from these courses, but it's a good idea to go to university open days to ask tutors more specific questions about what previous graduates typically went on to do with their degree.

What about your long term prospects?

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