EXPLAINER NOTES BY ANDY GARDNER

Subjects covered include:

English Language, English Literature

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:

Really, don’t get too stressed about where to study English if you are worried about earnings, it’s all a bit low.  Congratulations to Roehampton, whose graduates have higher median earnings than many more selective universities yet their students have mid range prior attainment.

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:
