    Oh, is that true?
    I don't know, is why I billed it 'my supposition'. It seems plausibly likely that a higher percentage of King's grads find employment in London than do Warwick grads. I'd be frankly astonished to find that it was otherwise.

    So where do Warwick students prefer find work? The Silicon Valleys of Shrewsbury?
    you're aware that six sevenths of the population live and work outside London?

    Mate, a higher percentage of KCL students get employed than Warwick students and on average get paid more, get over it.
    I don't doubt either circumstance as the case. As much as I'm wondering is what the read off is from this to the quality of the institution. There are variables to be allowed for and they should be if ours is a nuanced discussion and isn't punch and judy. One of these will be London salaries. Another, though, will be the fact that the single largest school at King's is the nursing school, which circumstance will bear positively on employment rates and perhaps negatively on starting salaries.

    There is one non-geographical factor. 21.8% of KCL leavers are classed as medical, dentistry or veterinary leavers. That is the highest proportion apart from Imperial, RVC and St George's. The equivalent figure for Warwick is 5.7%.

    This is a pointless statistic.

    What would be more interesting is the proportion of graduate level jobs located outside London.

    You forgot that STEM students on average make more money. And Warwick is more prominent in that area.

    Yes, the nurses should actually be a negative drag on KCL's average salary, like they are on its average entry grades since they require lower entry grades and make up a majority of the university.

    Relatively high starting salary, no unpaid internships.

    I am sure unpaid internships are not part of the list of "graduate-level" jobs in the statistics.

    The Nursing starting salary is £21,388. The average graduate training scheme salary is £26,500.

    Cambridge
    Oxford
    LSE
    UCL
    Durham
    Imperial College

    It is above (national) median.

    I think this includes graduates with all kinds of jobs, not graduates in only graduate-level jobs.

    The University of Cambridge
    The University of Oxford
    Imperial College London
    University College London (UCL)
    London's School of Economics & Political Science (LSE)
    The University of Edinburgh
    King's London

    I think the important fact revealed there is that studying part makes your salary significantly higher... it must be more prestigious

    Why don't you explain why KCL is not superior?



    How?
    It's a waste of time because you obviously don't listen to what people on here tell you.

    A waste of time or you don't have anything logical to say because all the stats state the obvious?

    Durham is the best out of the lot. Followed by SOAS.
