EXPLAINER NOTES BY ANDY GARDNER

Subjects covered include:

Psychology

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:

Seems around 75% of these courses produce lower quartile graduates earning below the national general median salary and one third are producing median earnings below the national general median earnings.  On a more positive note – The Only Way is Essex, producing higher end earnings from students in the mid-range prior attainment band.

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:
