    Hello people

    I just wanna know as I said in the title what is the highest paid job? I mean normal jobs after studying from a university which are paid high per month-wise? I'm not talking about movie star, film directors or something to do famous....just normal jobs. I thought Civil engineers are paid like 10000 pounds per month but it seems 1500 - 1900 pounds per month. Can anyone here help me out! Thanx in advance.

    Per month? It's usually done per year...

    The answer is banking.

    As already mentioned, banking :yep: but it's so competative you've got to really be at the top of your game to get a place. Oh and banks really do care about league tables and uni prestige.

    There's medicine, but considering the length of the course it's not a really good investment. The starting salaries are high but by the time medics graduate, their friends who graduated 2-3 years earlier would have already been promoted to that salary range PLUS they have the gained experience.

    Statistically the highest paid courses are economics from cambridge and computer science from Imperial (in terms of starting graduate salary).

    The really crazy salaries in the legal profession are ridiculously hard to achieve, so I'd probably say bankers and things.

    Starting salaries is usually littered with Medicine, Dentistry, Various Engineering, Computing, Maths, Sciences, Accounting, Vet Med. You can add law to that for non-starting salaries.

    They all earn over £200,000 a year.

    It's highly unlikely you'll get any of these jobs though unless you've been through Oxbridge/UCL/Imperial/Durham/Bristol or are exceptionally gifted AND well connected within said industries before hand
