    I would think it is obvious. Some people (probably a lot of people) are looking for high paying jobs when they graduate. This list could be one of many elements to use to base your choice of Uni.

    Not clear how they're determining how much of the salary difference is being 'delivered' by the university and how much is down to the traits that get students into those places in the first place.

    on an interesting note, London Met takes a dump on Durham in the next table on that page...

    So if you go to one of he leading universities like Imperial, Oxbridge or LSE then as a collective you might earn marginally more money? Deep.

    Quite. Only go to Imperial then because everyone pools and shares their salaries......

    Lol this can't be right. I've never met a graduate after first year that makes money like that. Which courses are these results this based on?

    And no information about course ratios. A university that awards relatively more degrees to high paying career paths would have a higher average graduate salary regardless of how competitive the students are.

    i mean...it wasn't obvious already that London graduates make the most money? They're likely to stay in London and be paid London wages?
