    I'm going to take a maths and economics degree and hopfully earn a lot in something (not sure what yet). I heard some of the highest paid professions are in actuarial science. Because maths is such a great transferable skill I hopefully won't end up jobless or with a job I can barely buy a house with (you know what I mean).
    What the hell is acturial science?

    Taking into account all BA or BSc degrees, on average, the highest paid is clinical dentistry. The Masters degree which, on average, results in you getting the highest paid job is economics.

    Interesting!
    this figure is for ten years after graduation. Dentists tend to get quite well paid initially, but their earnings will not increase that much over time. Twenty years after graduation I expect economists and probably lawyers and medics will have overtaken them.
