Graduates with a Birkbeck degree are the 11th highest earners overall among UK graduates and seventh highest in London for the subjects the College teaches, according to recently published government data.

Birkbeck’s Biosciences and Economics graduates are the highest earning in the UK after one year, with graduates earning an average of £28,400 and £35,800 respectively. Graduates studying Computing and Communications and Media degrees were the second highest earning, and Languages, Linguistics and Classics and Mathematical Sciences graduates the third highest.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes (LEO) salary data, published by the Department for Education, compares graduate earnings for those studying full-time and part-time undergraduate degrees.

Jenna Davies, Birkbeck’s Careers and Enterprise Manager, commented:

“Birkbeck has a reputation for attracting ambitious and motivated students who are keen to progress their careers. Our model of evening teaching means many of our students combine their studies with daytime employment and therefore graduate with several years of work experience under their belts.

“Students also benefit from our Birkbeck Futures service, encompassing our Careers, Enterprise and Talent support. Students can access comprehensive careers advice, events, tailored career programmes, online and face-to-face support as well as our in-house recruitment agency. Our commitment to developing the skills our students need to succeed in their careers, alongside the opportunities that Birkbeck’s evening teaching model provides, are clearly reflected in the LEO salary data.”
