    I would like to earn a similar wage to my parents (aeronautical engineer and a dentist). I highly doubt my Literature degree will get me far. Probably just the standard 28k that teachers get with the possibility to progress to 32k.

    I wouldn’t mind £25-30k until the age of about 25 but when I’m around 30 I want to be on at least £45k+. I want to be an accountant btw (possibly and actuary if I get good enough grades)

    I bet you aren’t even joking and think this will happen.. you wont even see 10% of that as a salary unless you plan on being a dr or top lawyer.
    not joking, range is possible in finance or technology in the right roles and right firms and in management.

    plus OP said peak salary, £30-40k is like a lower bound starting salary.

    In the UK, it's possible to earn over £100k as a good Software Engineer. In the US, £200k+ is possible.

    I'd be happy on 28k as a single living in London/Edinburgh, but not when I have a family and my needs change
    True but if your partner also worked its deffinately livable.

    What does your team leader earn? Or their manager? Or their director?

    I'm going into Software Engineering soo maybe 6 digits in later life but that's if everything goes right. I would be comfortable earning what my dad earns as a senior network manager in Seagate (I don't really know what he earns but he can provide for a whole family well enough on his own. i.e 2 cars and a holiday somewhere in europe every year with the family.) Part of that though is the genius of my mother who can budget like hell.

    I’d be happy with about £70k or more (at today’s prices- obviously with inflation £70k won’t be as valuable in 20 years’ time)
