Subject

Materials science

Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices regulation is now firmly established as a 'science' with an exponential increase in demand for such expertise worldwide. It is a growing field in emerging markets such as China, Far East, South America, Africa and Middle East. As pharmaceutical and devices regulation is becoming increasingly complex in global environments there is an urgent need to train individuals with appropriate skills in such disciplines at an undergraduate level. It is these individuals who will be best positioned to facilitate, manage and maintain the complex regulatory environment of the future, without compromising the quality of patient safety and care. The University of Hertfordshire is perfectly placed to attract and train individuals from not only the UK but from the rest of the world looking to further their careers in the exciting sectors of pharma/devices industry, regulatory and health technology assessment agencies. The career prospects for graduates of this programme is very promising with a high demand globally.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject isn't very common for undergraduates — so bear that in mind when you review the stats. Many people studying in this fast-moving and often very specialist area take a first degree in another subject and then do a postgraduate course in materials science, and so not many went into work in the UK last year. If you're interested specifically in polymers or textiles, then there is the option to study it as a degree on its own. Because these degrees are very specialist, starting salaries for graduates are pretty good though, so if you fancy something a bit different and cutting-edge, this might be worth thinking about.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

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?
