Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
These statistics refer to the prospects of graduates from a range of degrees including environmental health, counselling and occupational therapy, but the numbers of students taking these subjects tend to be quite small. Occupational therapy is an exception, with 1,060 degrees awarded in 2015. There are also usually a larger number of mature students, particularly with counselling-related degrees. We don't have enough occupational therapists to meet demand in the UK and numbers training are falling, so if you're looking at a role in the health sector this is a good option to consider.
