    I wouldn't set your sights far beyond 35,000 pounds per year if I were you. You're still wet behind the ears after all.

    most graduates' first salary is under £20k. £35k is in the highest tax bracket and well above the average wage in the UK.

    No way £35k for a starting salary, probably a bit under £20k actually.

    A professor came into our college to discuss it and he seemed to hint that there is a shortage and the stats he showed us had 24k as the average starting salary for a chemical engineering graduate rising but if you go into he petroleum sector then someone who graduated from UMIST last year who went to my college had a starting slary of 38K p/a, petrol companies seem to always be on the lookout.

    Yes you better had '****' that. Go to the lovely USA where you have to pay a fortune for health care, you will also have to pay much more for your tution fees and you have a clown like GW Bush running the country.

    Seriously why are people so bothered about money? If my parents earn £20k between them and manage ok I am sure a graduate can manage on that.
