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 do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The stats above mainly cover teaching degrees for training and qualifying in primary school education. These tend to be three or four-year courses — check with course tutors about how long you will need to study to get your Qualified Teacher Status. Most graduates go into teaching roles — usually primary school teaching, so these courses have good employment rates and starting salaries. We have a shortage of teachers of all kinds, which is deepening, and whilst many of the most severe are at secondary level, the prospects for this degree are not likely to take a downturn any time soon.

What about your long term prospects?
