Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The stats here cover not just anatomy, physiology and pathology courses, but also neuroscience and physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is more popular than the other four subjects combined. So, a lot of the data you’re looking at is really for physiotherapists, who have a slightly lower unemployment rate than the other subjects in this topic, having seen job prospects improve significantly in the last 12 months. Anatomy and physiology graduates often take further study – usually moving on to a medical degree, whilst pathology graduates tend to go into work. Physiotherapy graduates mainly go straight into work, and a majority got into physiotherapy roles within six months of graduation in 2012, either in hospitals or private practice. If you fancy working for yourself, physiotherapists are rather more likely than the average graduate to start their career self-employed.
