EXPLAINER NOTES BY ANDY GARDNER

Subjects covered include:

Law

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:

Dear oh dear, it’s really not good!  If many of these law students went into their degrees thinking they would be earning lots of money they must be very disappointed.  Two thirds of these courses have produced lower-quartile graduates that are earning below the UK median average.  Around one-third of these courses have median earnings below the national average.  One midlands university had a cohort of 270 students and the median average for this course is £19,700. I think I’ll stop!  If there are Paralegal or Solicitor Apprenticeships available locally and the sixth former is not interested that much in full-time HE then these must be seriously considered.

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:
