Revealed: The Russell Group unis where grads are most likely to earn under £15k
Makes all those hours in the library seem worth it after all
You know the score: uni puts you in a whole lot of debt, and you want to come out of it with some kind of decent paying job to make it worth it. But is that going to happen?
Turns out, there are some Russell Group unis where you’ve got a fair chance of earning less than £15k out of uni, even if you end up in full-time employment.
That’s according to stats collected as part of HESA’s graduate outcome survey, which has charted the success of the class of 2018. It counts those who are still living in the UK, and who made it into full-time employment.
If you really want to earn the big bucks – and this won’t come as a shock to anyone – LSE, UCL, Oxford, and Imperial are the places to go. Not a single grad was recorded as earning under £15k.
