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 above. Most graduates get jobs in engineering or management, but if you would like to find out more specifically about the prospects for your chosen course, it might be a good idea to go on an open day and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.

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?
