Yeah as said above depends on the careers.

E.g If your a graduate at an investment bank, that would be very bad and I'd suggest you'd leave asap.

To me it doesn't matter what area, I think that's reasonable . Most importantly it is a stepping stone and as you progress it will increase anyway.

Ridiculous question given there's no context given.

Depends; that was roughly what mine is living in London.

entirely dependent on career sector job aspirations etc. for some poeple looking to go into say, investment banking, accountancy, law etc that would be considered terrible.

Not necessarily. Plenty of people will start on that or less in accountancy/law training contracts. First jobs are about prospects, not starting salaries.

For most people that's an okay starting salary. I'd be a bit worried if you get to 30 and your not much higher though.

It's not a lot of money, for that I'd be more concerned about what I'm getting out of it. Am I going to gain the right experience over the next 12 months, and what will my prospects be in 12 months?

My Starting salary almost 2 years ago was 20k, I was a bit worried about how low it was and even had friends on higher salaries at the council. However, I've far exceeded them now and frequently get approached for decent roles.

Whether £19k is a good starting salary will depend on what qualifications, relevant experience (short term work or portfolio work) and other skills you have. It's all about displaying your worth to a potential employer.

It's an okay start, I wouldn't turn it down. But I would expect that to be the salary after completing a degree.
