What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

We have quite a lot of sociology graduates, although numbers fell last year. But graduates still do pretty well. Most sociology graduates go straight into work when they complete their degrees, and a lot of graduates go into jobs in social professions such as recruitment, education, community and youth work, and housing. An important option for a sociology graduate is social work - and we're short of people willing to take this challenging but rewarding career. Sociology is a flexible degree and you can find graduates from the subject in pretty much every reasonable job — obviously, you don't find many doctors or engineers, but you do find them in finance, the media, healthcare, marketing and even IT. Sociology graduates taking further study often branch out into other qualifications, like teaching, law, psychology, HR and even maths, so don’t think a sociology degree restricts you to just one set of options.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject has been a mainstay of the UK university system for centuries and is still going strong! Over 1000 graduates received classics degrees in 2015 and a quarter of those went on to further study, usually a Masters, and although many stayed with Classics, or moved slightly to history or archaeology, some changed to topics like law and teaching. Half of those who did go into work found jobs in London or the South East. Common jobs included working in education, marketing and advertising, or the finance industry as advisors or even accountants. Personal contacts were particularly important for these graduates in finding their first job, so good networks may help your job search when the time comes.

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?
