‌Faculty of Social Sciences: Education

This report contains an analysis of destinations data for graduates who completed their course in 2014/15, based on the Destinations of Leavers from the Higher Education (DLHE) survey.


Destinations vary widely, many working in jobs related to their degree, with others in totally unrelated areas and some opting instead for further study or other options.  The majority of vacancies advertised to graduates do not ask for specific degree subjects so your options are very wide indeed.
