How graduate earnings vary with gender, university attended, subject, an socio-economic background
A new report from the Institute of Fiscal Studies, a UK independent research institute, shows that graduates from wealthier family backgrounds earn significantly more after graduation than graduates from poorer backgrounds, even after completing the same degrees from the same universities.
Those studying medicine and economics earn far more than those studying other degree subjects.
There is also considerable variation in graduates’ earnings depending on the university attended. Graduate earnings for men at more than 1 in 10 universities and colleges were lower than for non-graduates.
