Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The business and research sectors worry that the UK hasn't got enough people with good statistics skills, and as stats are at the heart of so much of the economy, and we only have a few hundred graduates a year in the discipline, this type of degree can be very useful and versatile. More than half of statisticians who are working following graduation go to work in finance, and they're far more likely to be working in London than most other graduates. And who can blame them – statistics graduates starting work in London were earning an average of over £28k just six months after leaving university. There is also demand from the Scottish finance sector in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Last year, statisticians starting work in Scotland were earning nearly £26k on average after six months – less than in London, but perhaps better off overall than their counterparts south of the border when you factor in lower living costs.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Management degrees are a popular choice, with more than 6,000 graduates in 2012. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year – not just those within the finance industry, but also community work, IT, marketing and PR and even surveying. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
