What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The stats cover quite a broad subject area, but over half of the graduates we're talking about here studied some kind of audio technology subject. It's not a surprise, then, to find that the most common job for graduates from this subject last year was as a sound technician in film, TV and music. Jobs in IT, as arts officers or musicians, in marketing, or in business were also popular — these degrees can be quite flexible and give you a lot of opportunities. Another degree that falls under this heading is in transport logistics (told you it was broad!), and those graduates did particularly well as our whole just-in-time retail economy really needs good logistics skills - and graduates with those qualifications are in serious shortage. But your prospects do depend on the particular degree you take, so if you have a course in mind, take a look at the information on the university's website.

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?
