    I think it depends moreso on the University than the degree in some cases.

    probably through their graduate management schemes, right?

    doubt it, why the **** would you do that with a law degree.

    Depends. If your talking general degrees I'd say something like a history degree maybe law.

    When I was at ARU's open day, the lecturer produced a chart showing the number of students within employment after six months of graduating. Psychology was second from top (I can't remember the top!) and IT and Arts at the bottom. I’m sure you’ll find stats on google somewhere.

    Probably, a degree in a subject you're interested in, that will lead you into a career you're interested in.

    erm anything,,, just make sure that you can apply it to the job role and it has application for the work place.

    some folkes opt to take unusual studies such as viking and war, those are the risky ones, or in fact the non standard ... this is gona sound like a secondry school teacher but English Maths or science is really good.

    Not investment banking, but still, its a graduate scheme from a reputable retail company and its aimed at graduates so the pay and career prospects shouldn't be too bad.
