These are the degree subjects where male grads still get paid more than women
This is shocking tbh
The degree subjects where male grads still get paid more than women have been revealed.
On average, female grads from medicine and dentistry earn £20,000 less than their male counterparts. That’s a pay gap of a third.
This is the starkest subject pay gap, but other degrees also produce big gulfs in salary after 10 years. Combined and general studies, veterinary sciences, and business management all turn out to be more lucrative for male grads.
The stats were compiled by careers app Debut, and based on government data from a study following students who graduated in 2006. The figures are average salaries after 10 years of working.
Nationwide stats for the gender pay gap vary. The Office for National statistics calculates the gap for full-time employees at 8.9 per cent, and at 17.3 per cent for all employees. Whilst this has been declining over time, it has done so slowly.
