Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This subject includes degrees in urban studies and housing as well as planning qualifications. Be a little careful when looking at the stats, as most jobs in planning, especially in town planning, go to Masters students in the subject – planning is a very popular Masters degree. So if you want a job in planning, expect to stay on at university after you have finished your first degree. Those who leave after their first degree are more likely to go into surveying. The subject is in demand, though, so despite the downturn in construction, planning graduates are less likely than the average to be out of work.
