Top job areas of graduates

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.
