    Came across this while reading. 4 years old, but it's unlikely to have changed much. Widespread London domination on this list, I was actually quite surprised to see Oxford all the way down in 8th. I also thought that Imperial would claim top spot, given it only gives out STEM degrees, but not so.

    What're people's thoughts on this? Also, can someone comment how much higher the average salary is in London? Naturally it's going to be higher, due to higher living costs, but once you account for the geographic location, which uni really pays more on value.

    Probably all those useless courses dragging down the averages I suppose.

    They should compare earnings for the same courses, rather than overall, otherwise specialist universities like Imperial, LSE, and medical schools, have an unfair advantage.

    Here is the list, from highest to lowest incomes, where specialist unis are in red
    LSE, Imperial, St George's London, UCL, Royal Vetineary College, Cambridge, Kings College London, Oxford, Queen Mary London, City

    There's UNISTATS for that. I know that Imperial comes out on top for the highest graduate salary for any course (which is computing at £38,000). Though again, being in London, they get higher salaries... It's why most of this list is dominated by London universities, even ones that aren't that prestigious.
