EXPLAINER NOTES BY ANDY GARDNER

Subjects covered include:

Linguistics, Languages, Classics, Classical 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:

Earnings seems to be higher than English and Historical courses.  Virtually all courses take students from the high and middle prior attainment bands.

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:
