Nottingham in the news: Day 9


The University of Nottingham is celebrating a summer of successes as it prepares to welcome students for the new academic year. For the next few weeks we’ll be profiling a daily story that put Nottingham in the news.

Nottingham graduates earn more

Graduates from the University of Nottingham are earning more and could be progressing faster up the career ladder according to government data.

In 14 of the subjects included in the data Nottingham graduates have earnings at least £3,000 above the average for all universities.

In 15 of the subjects the data shows that the rank of the median salary for Nottingham graduates improves between one and five years after graduation, in so

me cases by over 10 places. This suggests that graduates from the University of Nottingham progress in their careers faster than graduates from other universities.

Top earners included graduates in medicine, economics and mathematical sciences who commanded average earnings of £48,500, £47,900 and £39,400 respectively after five years. Nottingham ranked 4th, 9th and 8th for high earners in these subjects across all universities.

The Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) data  uses tax, benefits and student loans data to compile employment and salary information.

Clearing course listings for EU and UK students will be released on the evening of Wednesday 16 August.  Our Clearing hotline will open at 8am on Thursday 17 August. Places are still available for qualified international students (outside the EU) on many of our undergraduate courses starting in September 2017.
