    From my perspective, those with 5 years experience, with a CCNP qualification

    (NHS) doctors dont make as much as you'd think (Especially not for the amount of work they do)
    Once fully qualified doctors are guaranteed to make over 50k at LEAST, which is why I said 'most likely'.
    Dentists are making 60k after their training year as associates. If they choose to specialise easy 100k+ due to the scope of private practice.

    Define "fully qualified"

    http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/working...nge-pay-rates/

    A "fully qualified" network technician are pretty much guaranteed to make over 60K at LEAST

    Though most won't get there. I accept that Im probably going to be on the 40-45K pay

    I was also talking about NHS doctors. I accept that private doctors get paid a lot more,but most doctors in the UK work for the NHS

    A fully qualified vet only earns around £40 000
    "only" £40,000 is a lot of money...

    By fully qualified I mean finished with their training, aka GP or consultant or surgeon.
    In the NHS consultants and surgeons will be on 75-100k

    Because every one is a consultant or a surgeon...

    In the private sector, you'd get more than that (including private doctors) The fact of the matter is that most doctors work for the NHS in the UK, and the private sector always pays more than the public sector (Or should be)

    Though Im probably out of my area here, so I'll quote in an actual doctor

    Most people who go to London to just earn money want to get out eventually. London is an expensive hole.

    Computer Science...provided you study at a prestigious university, are passionate (dedicated to learning every in-demand language etc.) and go to London/Dublin/anywhere with a decent tech. industry. A lot of graduates also get into investment banking - especially in London.

    However, if you go to a Post-92 university and don't have any passion for it...say goodbye to any hopes of having a decent job (as shown by CompSci having the largest unemployment rates)
    Thats probably because a lot of things come under the "Computer Science" banner

    Also, for my particular course, post 92 unis are far far better than redbricks for the kind of work you do

    Kinda happy all the money driven students on this site don't have informed opinions. Less competition for the rest of us lel.
    This is true. I should really stop "bigging up" IT

    They all think they will get into Oxbridge and get a job within 10mins of graduating and the starting salary will be over 50k xD
    It is not crap and a lot of degrees don't even lead up to 50k.
    50k is a very good amount to earn. People need to stop thinking they will earn 100k within the first few years of working unless they have a genius plan or business idea.

    £60-70k for first year IB? More like £45k? Still very high, but think your numbers are a bit high for a first year!
    If you get a maths/physics/maths with finance degree from Oxford then 50-60k is typical starting salary. It probably is around 50-55k for prestigious universities too

    Lol I had started a business in my gap year so that I can save up for uni. Of course because I started uni after that year so I had to close it down. I still didn't earn that much not even half of it lol. :teehee: but I am happy I didn't suffer a loss though.

    Yea, my post was worded a little strongly haha...with jobs related to CS mostly it's important to show some passion and dedication. But tbf, it's mostly the people with the degree to back themselves up that get themselves in the really lucrative positions.

    Tbh with you, I think people do IT at school, think CS is going to be like that, are disappointed when it isn't, which could explain the high drop out rates

    Its also a huge umbrella term. in a sense I'm not complaining because it deters people from the industry
