Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
One of the UK's fastest-growing subject at degree level, and the fourth most popular subject overall, one in 24 of all graduates last year had psychology degrees. As you'd expect with figures like that, jobs in psychology itself are incredibly competitive, so to stand a chance of securing one, you need to get a postgraduate qualification (probably a doctorate in most fields) and some relevant work experience. But even though there are so many psychology graduates – far more than there are jobs in psychology – this degree has a lower unemployment rate than average because its grads are so flexible and well-regarded by business. With a mix of good people skills and with excellent number and data handling skills, a psychology degree ticks most employers' boxes – but we'd suggest you don't drop your maths modules.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
One of the fastest growing subjects in the country, the number of sports science graduates has gone from under 3,000 in 2003 to nearly 9,500 in 2012. However, the good news is the country's appetite for good health and fitness means that sports science grads are less likely than average to be out of work. Sports science graduates, not surprisingly, tend to get jobs in sport and fitness, coaching and teaching especially, but they're found all over the economy. Management is also a popular option for graduates from this subject – after all, this is a degree for people who want to motivate others!
