Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
More than 2,000 students graduated with a degree in finance in 2012, but recent times have been difficult for the finance industry. As things recover, however, we'd expect the statistics to improve, and as so many – over half of the employed graduates from 2012 - go into finance, it's not surprising that London is by far the most common location for graduates from the subject to go into work, although Scotland and the North West also take quite a few graduates. It's also common for finance graduates to go into jobs such as accountancy, which require you to take more training and gain professional qualifications – finance graduates who take further study are more likely to be studying accountancy than finance.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
You don't have to be an accountant if you take this degree, but a lot of graduates take a look at the rewards on offer for accountancy trainees and go into the job. Many others go into other parts of the finance industry, and some go into management or marketing. The recent setbacks in the finance industry have meant the employment figures are not as good as usual and if the industry recovers, we'd expect to see that data improve. London is very popular for accountancy graduates going into their first job, but it's also quite common to work in Scotland, with Glasgow a hotbed of Scottish accountancy recruitment in 2012. If you want to find a job in finance as an accountancy graduate, recruitment agencies were particularly important last year, so try to get in touch with one as soon as you can to improve your chances.
