    I would say, Medicine/nursing, Economics, and Engineering if you want a job right out of uni.

    I'd certainly have to agree with Engineering, nearly everyone I know who's graduating this year has already got a job lined up . And they're not shabby jobs either.

    Actually, most of the finalists I know have been snapped up by some firm or other , but engineers seem to be in higher demand than the average :p: .

    Engineers, physical scientists and Med/Dents are probably the most employable.

    It's a very specific degree. Someone with an engineering degree can't wake up one day and start programming, so yeah, it's a good bet IMO.

    That is not strictly true. Many engineering courses have a strong computer based component. Many modern teachnologies are run by computers - most electronic engineers should have a decent background in programming (of course not to the same level as comp. sci.).

    E&M was named by the Times as the most employable degree in the country, and is also the most oversubscribed major Oxbridge course (only less than a couple of very small degrees). Maths at Cambridge is known to be just incredible, though obviously Oxbridge's and Warwick's being really good too.
    medicine is a minority fringe subject? :p:

    The programming component at Oxford is particularly strong. I have a friend who went into a PhD in Robotics (all programming) after his Oxford Engineering degree.

    At Oxford ? I know someone who's doing Robotics now after having done her degree here, sounds really interesting actually.

    Yes, at oxford. He spent a year working in the CGI industry but decided he liked academia more. He's doing Visual Geometry with Andrew Fitzgibbon.

    Yes I know. I also know many unemployed Modern Language grads, interpreter jobs are like rocking horse poo. Most business people can speak english, especially in europe.
