Graduates earn higher salaries

03 March 2020

Research by the Institute for Fiscal Studies shows, by subject and type of university, how studying at universities benefits both the individual and the exchequer across most subjects, through increased graduate earnings. A summary of the findings can be found at the website.

Dr Tim Bradshaw, Chief Executive of the Russell Group, said:

"The economic value of quality higher education is clear, benefiting both the individual and the Exchequer. Alongside academic excellence, the overall university experience can have a transformative impact on people’s lives.

"Universities and Government have a responsibility to ensure that the opportunities of a world class education are open to all and the benefits are felt across the country.

"The UK’s world leading universities will be central in delivering the home-grown skills the UK needs to prosper in the years ahead."
