    Hello,

    Are you a student at the moment?

    If you are working towards a degree, we have some good information over on Milkround on which jobs offer the highest starting salaries for graduates - including this article: http://advice.milkround.com/graduate...earn-milkround.

    Currently, Investment Banking & Law are the highest paying sectors, closely followed by Banking & Finance, and Oil & Energy. The lowest paying sector is the Public Sector (Government roles etc).

    The good news is that, overall, the average starting salary for a graduate is now £26,000 – 2% higher than last year. Hope that helps!

    Investment banking and law are famously competitive too youve gotta remember, if you didnt go oxbridge or UCL/LSE/Imperial your chances for getting that wage are a lot lower.

    People who only study certain subjects (Medicine, Dentistry etc) because of the salary and NOT because of whether or not they would enjoy the career really need a kick in the face.

    True, but there are some decent unis that place well outside of that group - not to mention you forgot Warwick which is a main feeder - including: Bristol, Durham, Nottingham, Bath, KCL.
