Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Before the recession, architecture had one of the lowest unemployment rates of all the main subjects, and graduates were in demand. But the recession hit the construction industry very hard and that has meant a tough few years for architects. Things have been looking up more recently, though, so we hope and expect that the jobs market for architects will get better. Most working architects secure jobs in the architecture industry, more usually starting as assistants rather than full-blown architects or chartered technicians. Some, however, move into management, design or marketing roles, where they find their planning, design and project management skills are very welcome. Nearly half the architecture-related jobs last year were in London or the South East, and this group are rather more likely than average to find their jobs through personal contacts, so polish your networking skills if you want to succeed as an architect.
