    Never seen £120k in the UK for Google. It's usually £70-80k.

    Hmmm, but couldnt this theory be applied to many things i.e. if you did a 4 year MSci degree, or went on to do a masters, or took a gap year or two ?
    Yes its something to consider. Hard to say with any certainty without the stats (which I haven't looked for) about how many people go on to study for a masters or take time out etc and whether that has an impact on the figures.

    I suppose its just better to look at average earnings/salary X years since starting an undergraduate degree. I believe that would give a more accurate comparison.

    Your comments don’t make any sense

    Chf and gbp are not close
    120000 chf = 91200 gbp
    Then there’s the cost of living which is notorious in Switzerland

    Why would you start by only mentioning the worse offer

    Plus google don’t pay that much to grads, unless you’re in silicon valley

    They do. And they actually pay more in Switzerland than they do in SV overall.

    Depends on the course/job. If you're an English grad then 25k is great. If you're a chemical engineering grad then that's poor. If you're an engineering grad but you choose to go into teaching then 25k is good again.
    lol reality will hit you hard when you realise even as a chemical/mechanical engineering grad £25k is probably what you'll realistically get. Job market is hard out there especially with brexit, you'll be quite blessed to land something that pays £28k+

    2 offers for 28.5k, one with a 2k joining bonus.
    I haven't seen many positions as low as 25k.

    They exist! Grad schemes are not easy to get on (esp for engineering) so well done if you have those two offers.
