Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
There are two options for geography studies: this one is the human and social geography side (there is also an option for physical geography, a more science-based degree). There is a shortage of social science graduates with really good maths skills, and graduates from these disciplines who have them are in demand from modern industry. An ability to combine good data handling skills with good communication and social skills will really help start your career, and that's something a geography degree with a good stats component can really bring to the jobs market. It's also why unemployment rates for the degree are much lower than average, and a lot of geography graduates start their careers in sought-after jobs in the business and finance industry – so if you take this subject, be sure to take your maths and stats modules.

Management degrees are a popular choice, with more than 6,000 graduates in 2012. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year – not just those within the finance industry, but also community work, IT, marketing and PR and even surveying. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
