What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Many dance graduates from 2015 went straight into dance or choreography jobs, and there are good employment rates overall. Work in education, in schools and colleges, as freelance dance teachers or in sports and fitness, are also common. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common (over one in five dance graduates from 201t were working for themselves), as are what is termed 'portfolio careers' — having several part-time jobs or commissions at once, and building your contacts and work experience can be very important for dance students to find their first job, so be prepared to work your people skills.

What about your long term prospects?

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