What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Very few students study this subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at the stats. As with many scientific degrees, further study to pursue a career in research may be a good option, but if you want to find out more specifically about the prospects for your chosen subject, it might be a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates from your chosen subject went on to do.
