Interesting points from the depths of the LEO spreadsheet:

Go Anglia Ruskin!  Also London South Bank, which is in the lowest band of prior attainment, is above UCL, in the highest band of prior attainment, in terms of median earnings five years after graduation.

The majority of the courses in this sector have students in the mid and low prior attainment range, yet their earnings are very strong.  Could SOCIAL MOBILITY actually be happening in this sector?

It’s not just about the 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 can be clearly bogus.  See information below.

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