What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.

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.
