LONDON – For many students attending university is a means to an end, with that end being a fulfilling and well-paid job once they graduate.
Money, straight after university, is often seen as the most important factor in choosing a job for graduates, so with that in mind, Business Insider decided to take a look at the British universities where recent graduates found themselves earning the most money.
Salary benchmarking site Emolument analysed the salaries of around 2,400 graduates from UK universities all of whom had a maximum of two years’ professional experience, in order see the median salary for graduates from each higher education institution.
“With fees due to increase by over £9,000 this year, and students graduating with over £50,000 of debt on average, it is worth asking if the financial rewards a degree brings are worth the investment,” Emolument’s COO Alice Leguay said in a statement.
