Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This is a newly-classified subject area for this kind of data, so we don’t currently have very much information to display or analyse yet. The group covers beauty therapies, hair, make-up and other wellbeing-related courses - we'd suggest heading to university and college open days to find out more from tutors about the type of roles graduates typically go on to do.Chiropody is the largest subject in this group and although graduates have a slightly higher than average unemployment rate, nearly three quarters of employed chiropody graduates had jobs as podiatrists after six months.
