EXPLAINER NOTES BY ANDY GARDNER

Subjects covered include:

Computer science, Information systems and networks, Software engineering, Artificial intelligence, Health informatics, Games, Computer generated visual & audio effects

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:

Well done University of Hertfordshire, high median earnings from students in the lowest prior attainment band with an extremely large cohort.  Like Architecture, Building and Surveying, there seems to be genuine Social Mobility going on here, with students in the middle or low prior attainment bands earning well above the national median average.  BTW this sector has very well-developed Apprenticeships with many sixth formers now going onto Advanced, Higher or Degree Apprenticeships

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:
