Average Graduate Starting Salaries by Subject Degree
The following table shows information on the average graduate starting salary based on your university degree.
About these Figures:
The stats are based on the average starting salary for all leavers 6 months after leaving university. Unlike other stats such as those used by HighFlighers.co.uk, these stats are not weighted towards graduate schemes by the top UK recruiters.
It’s also important to note that these figures only show the average starting salary. The amount upon which you salary increases and your life-time earnings varies depending on your chosen career. For example, while the starting salary for those studying Medicine is around £29,000, this can quickly rise to £40,000+ after a few years of experience and training.
The same is true for graduates who enter the accounting and finance industry, i.e. once you achieve your ACCA qualifications and gain promotion from associate to senior associate or consultant, your salary can increase by another 25-33%.
