Students from lower-ranked university have just a 1 in 5 chance of securing a top job after they graduate
Only one in five graduates from some of Britain’s lowest ranked universities will find a good job, according to statistics.

A ‘highly skilled’ full-time position was attained by as low as 20% of English undergraduate students who spent close to £28,000 on their degrees within 15 months, according to research.


The information has been published by the Government’s Discover Uni site, where people can search for details such as student satisfaction and graduate outcomes.

The lack of prospects offered by courses at universities ranked among the UK’s worst comes despite high wages for their Vice Chancellors, some of whom earn almost double the Prime Minister’s salary.

Iain Mansfield, research director at the Policy Exchange think-tank, said: ‘Universities receive over £10billion a year of public funding and many vice-chancellors are paid handsomely. There is no reason why taxpayers should be forced to fund low-value courses which leave students with nothing but a lifetime of debt.’

At some Scottish institutions figures were even lower. The Mail’s research comes days after the Government criticised ‘rip-off’ degrees. One of the worst performers was Bolton University’s BA (hons) in Creative Writing, with 40 per cent of students working 15 months after graduation and only half of those in highly-skilled jobs – equivalent to 20 per cent of all course graduates.

Bolton is placed 120th of 130 by The Complete University Guide. Its vice-chancellor, George Holmes, was paid £322,000 in 2022. By comparison, Rishi Sunak earned £167,000.

Just over a quarter of graduates from 100th-placed Derby University’s BSc (hons) in Performance Analysis and Coaching Science (PACS) were in highly-skilled work after 15 months.

At bottom-placed Wrexham Glyndwr University, students in its Design Studies faculty had a 55 per cent satisfaction score. Although 36 per cent were in skilled jobs after 15 months, average salaries were just £17,000 after five years.

Courses at some better-scored institutions fared badly including 23rd-ranked University of East Anglia (UEA). Sociology, Social Policy and Anthropology course types saw 27.5 per cent in skilled work after 15 months and satisfaction of 55 per cent.In contrast, leading Russell Group institution Nottingham University’s Economics degree had 73 per cent satisfaction, and 57.6 per cent in highly skilled work after 15 months.
