Just to explain:

Kings College London is 30th on the Uni rankings in terms of Computer Science:

However, compared to like Newcastle and Lancaster (25th, 16th on the Uni rankings) they have a very high graduate starting salary?

Lancaster starting salary: 24k
http://unistats.direct.gov.uk/Subjec...07768FT-001085

Newcastle starting salary: 21k
http://unistats.direct.gov.uk/Subjec...-objid50024749

Kings College London: 28k
http://unistats.direct.gov.uk/Subjec...45FT-UBSH3CSCS


I know that they only survey a little amount of people, but does anyone have an explanation for this?

Thanks!

The main factor that drags Kings down is the low student satisfaction, which is not relevant to graduate prospects/employability.

Also Kings graduates are likely to work in London which generally have higher salaries (and expenses as well).

Probably a lot more employment opportunities around london unis, thats also the average salary of people after six months some can get higher and some lower furthermore employers dont take rankings very seriously when the university already has high credibility.
