Which University Degree Is Worth The Most Money?
If you are considering going to university, or maybe just curious to know how much you can actually earn after completing a degree, then have a look at the top money making degree subjects.
Getting a degree is a great idea, however, we all know they don’t come cheap to anyone. Especially now ALL grants have been scrapped by the government. So here’s what students need to be taking up in order to be some of the countries highest average earners.
Economics – £45,000
Accountancy & Finance – £42,404
Law – £42,000
Computer Science – £41,144
Mathematics & Statistics – £39,000
Chemistry & Natural Sciences – £38,000
Engineering – £37,000
Lots of the degrees in the list that are considered to be some of the highest earners, require students to be passionate and enthusiastic about numbers or technology.
Research conducted by job search engine Adzuna.co.uk found that job seekers who didn’t have a degree could expect to earn £12,000 a year less than those who did have one.
However, if you didn’t get into uni then don’t panic. These career paths are some of the best-paying jobs and don’t require a degree.
Equities Trader – £59,475
Mining Construction – £56,260
Offshore Oil Platform Worker – £49,278
Nuclear Energy Worker – £44,494
Air Traffic Controller – £41,011
You will definitely get much more out of your chosen degree if it is something you are truly passionate about, rather than choosing something which will earn you lots of money. Doing a degree is always going to be a bit of a gamble unless you have a guaranteed job at the end of it.
