    Ditto, bit shocked, I presume it means the employability in relation to the degree, e.g. percentage of law graduates whom become practising solicitors/training contracts/etc.

    I'm guessing that's supposed to be 19% not 198% on Town and Country Planning? That *would* be impressive.

    Unless it means that the extra 98% (in relation to people doing the degree) are people from other degrees going into town and country planning? Thats the only other plausiable explanation I can think of.

    Well I'm going on the basis that they're adding the two columns together to rank them, and the one above is 83, the one below is 79, so 62+19 would give 81 putting it in that place.

    Interesting...American Studies has a higher employment rate than English. And here's me deciding to do English because I thought it would lead to better job opportunities!

    Erm remember to take the further study into account too, it seems most law graduates go onto further study hence the low graduate employment rate.

    Does that mean that the X% who don't go on to further study or get a graduate level job go into entry-level jobs? 'cause for my degree that figure is 44% and they can't all be unemployed!

    Town and country planning has a very high employment rate, it won't be 19%

    Its talking about employment straight after the degree. The 24% mentioned are probably the 24% who decide not to do an LPC or BVC, and secure a graduate job. The LPC & BVC are probably counted as further study. Considering that around two thirds do either one of these, this leaves 9% who leave legal education after the degree but don't find graduate employment, which is good!

    Ah right, just has always seemed weird to me ... especially in this case because the jobs most pharmacy graduates get are not gonna be the same as pharmacology graduates.
