Economics
5 years after Graduation.


EXPLAINER NOTES BY ANDY GARDNER

Subjects covered include:

Economics

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:

Good levels of median earnings. Approximately 80% of courses produce median earnings of £30k plus, and half of these are in the middle prior attainment band.  Like Business Studies there are a range of apprenticeships in accountancy, insurance and investment management that sixth formers could consider if they are not bothered about the university experience.

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:
