    It'd be more interesting to see average salaries 5/10/20 years after graduation though. Also it's not all about money! NQTs, people working in the charity sector, etc don't get paid lots but are clearly vital

    It would be even more great if they done one for the course. For example Law, the highest paid students that graduated from a Law degree where from the following universities. That would be great man :rolleyes:

    It's not surprising when you think about the industries that people go into in relation to where they study. You don't get extra money for prestige, you get money for going into well paid industries.

    I am an idiot because? There is no need to be rude I just though Oxbridge students would be at the top of the list. No biggy!

      Although we start with some of the top universities which makes sense, we also have in there London South Bank, Greenwich etc, in other words the most likely reason for this is the London Allowance since most graduates would be finding work around London. Remove this allowance and you get a different result.

      Think too that salaries and cost of living are different depending on the region.
      Durham graduates may earn less than people from London South Bank (:confused:??), but this is because usually graduates from most unis stay in the area. Some go to London, but people studying in Durham (some) will stay in the NE. While people studying in London will stay in London, so the average will be higher.
      I'm shocked that people at LSE earn on average more than people at Imperial, though.

      GREENWICH UNIVERSITY? Why the **** am I bothering with a proper degree *sighs* I could just pop down the road to my local uni...

      Seriously though most of the reason these second rate London unis (and a lot of the best unis in the country) are so high is because of London wages being higher due to higher living costs...

      I would expect the list to be reversed.

      Most people who go to the best Law schools will do the LPC or BVTC.
      Others will go into other sectors, and be paid.

      if only people on this forum spent less time bashing universities like greenwich + south bank, and instead used this time to put more effort into searching for the better paid jobs (like the students of the aforementioned places).

      Oxbridge has a lot of classicists etc who'll drag the average down, unlike IC & LSE.

      I thought it was more interesting to see who's giving Warwick a run for it's money given the cheery TSR consensus about it's brilliance.

      Why are you shocked? If anything, it is to be expected.

      Subject and industry wise breakdowns would be more interesting. The former would take out the London allowance and give an insight into economically beneficial degrees. Also, why is Dundee the highest Scottish university on that list ahead of both Edinburgh and Glasgow?
