Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
There are a lot of computing courses out there, and they vary a lot in content, modules and the way they work with employers, so individual courses can have very different outcomes. This is a course where you really need to get a good grade – unemployment rates for graduates with good grades can be half those of graduates with slightly poorer degree classes. Most students do get jobs, though, and starting salaries are good, particularly in London. If you want to find out more about the prospects for a computer science course at a particular institution, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.
