After graduation


The stats in this section relate to the general subject area/s at this university – not this specific course. We show this where there isn't enough data about the course, or where this is the most detailed info available to us.

Development studies

What are graduates doing after six months?

This is what graduates told us they were doing (and earning), shortly after completing their course. We've crunched the numbers to show you if these immediate prospects are high, medium or low, compared to those studying this subject/s at other universities.

Top job areas of graduates

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is a newly-classified subject area for this kind of data, and so there are not a lot of stats available for development subjects. About 100 graduates a year take these degrees at the moment and they only attend a handful of universities. It's an emerging field, so if you want a good view of what the degree provides, make sure you get on an open day, talk to course tutors and ask them if they have any stats for their course.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
