EXPLAINER NOTES BY ANDY GARDNER

Subjects covered include:

Animal science, Agriculture, Forestry & arboriculture, Food & beverage studies

General Median salaries to compare with below

For all 24-29-year-olds in work in 2014-15: £20,800 WonkHE.   For all ages, £27,600 in 2015 ASHE

Interesting points from the depths of the LEO spreadsheet:

Clearly students are in this essential area for reasons other than high salaries – many thanks, I need to eat!  UCB is well positioned in the table, but not for agriculture – culinary and baking!  There doesn’t seem to be a strong link between prior attainment at A Level and earnings! Bristol University is here due to its Veterinary Nursing course, from what I can see.

It’s not just about money!

There are many reasons to go to university; love of a subject, independent and critical thinking, independent living (if affordable!).  It’s not just about salary levels, however applicants must not be misled by general statements about a blanket graduate dividend, these are clearly bogus.  See information below.

For courses with a clear vocational link, check to see if there is a relevant apprenticeship standard:
