It's no secret that the job market in the United Kingdom is quite competitive right now. This means it's important to think about which degree will help you get a better job after you graduate. So, waltzing into an art history degree because you're unsure what you want to do and a friend assured you it'd be simple is a horrible idea. For starters, obtaining a bachelor's degree in art history is far from simple. But, more importantly, university is a time for hard work and tough choices. If you intend to attend university, you should select a major that will provide you with the best preparation for the career you desire. As a result, here are the ten most employable degrees to consider while making your decision.
Law degrees are worth more than their titles - they aren't merely confirmation of legal understanding. It's a credential for memory and applied intelligence. As a result, students with law degrees are in high demand, yet they are rarely placed in the legal field. Law graduates can find work in fields other than law and can expect to earn roughly £19,500 after they graduate.
Within six months of finishing their degree, 90% of graduates find work or continue their education. It's worth noting that over half of this 90 percent – about half – completed their education after law school, implying that many law graduates chose to specialize further after graduation.
2. Computer science
Computing is a large and diverse field. Traditional programming and database design are covered, as well as cutting-edge technology like virtual reality and artificial intelligence. As a result, there are numerous computer science degrees to select from. Whatever path you choose in computing, you can expect to be in high demand, as evidenced by the fact that 80% of graduates find work within 6 months of graduation. Computing experts earn a good £24,000 on average as graduates.
Engineers are in high demand throughout Europe. This is shown in the 85 percent employment (or further study) rate within six months of graduation. Engineering is a huge discipline with a lot of different subcategories. Electrical, mechanical, software, environmental, chemical, acoustic or biological, or civil engineering are just a few of the fields covered.
Engineering jobs are usually divided into two categories: public and private. In terms of the job's content, they're both very similar. In general, the private sector is more difficult to enter and pays more. Last year, though, the average starting pay for engineering graduates was £25,000. So, put in the effort and strive to break into that sizable group.
4. Medicine and dentistry
There are no surprises here. Within six months of graduation, 99 percent of all medicine and dental graduates find work or continue their education. Consider a class of 200 students studying medicine or dentistry, with all but one securing employment. Impressive.
The average graduate income for medicine and dental grads was £30,000 last year, which is even more amazing! But don't be fooled: these grads are in high demand since their degrees necessitate devotion and hard work. Medical students may have it tougher than anyone else, so if you want to pursue a career in medicine, be prepared to work all day, every day.
5. Veterinary services
It is, in fact, a distinct field from medicine and dentistry. With 98 percent of all graduates obtaining work or further study six months after graduation, it is holding its own in the employment stakes.
The length of veterinary science degrees is one of the reasons that makes them so difficult. A BVSc program lasts five to six years. This means that the average graduate will only be able to work as a veterinarian when they are around 25 years old. That is, assuming they begin when they are 18 or 19 years old!
It's no surprise that veterinary degrees take so long to complete because there are so many different talents to learn and so many different species to become acquainted with. With an average starting income of £28,000, it might be worth the wait.
6. Architecture building and planning
Students can study a wide range of subjects thanks to the architecture, which covers arts, math, technology, and science. A degree in architecture, on the other hand, will prepare you for a wide range of careers. Graduates can pursue specializations in residential architecture, commercial architecture, and urban planning. Architecture graduates have excellent job prospects, with 90% of graduates working full-time or pursuing additional education six months following graduation. It's worth mentioning, though, that many architecture graduates opt for self-employment, and those who don't can find work in larger organizations for roughly £22,000 per year.
6. Medicine allied subjects
We include degrees in neuroscience, drug discovery, and the biomedical sciences in this category. Within six months of graduation, 95 percent of students had found work or continued their study. That's not too shabby at all. Degrees in this field need a lot of effort, a lot of hours, and a fair pay (beginning salary of £22,000).
Early in your career, you will have the opportunity to study medicine and specialize. Of course, this is a good thing. Young professionalism is fine, but if you're an expert in your industry first and a young professional second, you'll be able to charge better salaries in the future.
