University Salary Prospects
Fri 10 Jul 2015

When the A-level results are published on 13th August, thousands of young people across the UK will turn to clearing as their route into University, filling places on courses at universities they perhaps haven't even considered previously. Students have always had very little transparency about where their degree might lead, but a new service from Emolument.com provides quick, simple information about what students' choices of course or university might mean for their career prospects and earning potential, allowing them to make more informed decisions.

Emolument.com statistics are compiled from crowdsourced data, submitted anonymously by over 60,000 individuals in order to access their own tailored salary benchmarking report for free. Emolument.com's new Student service allows prospective students to access at-a-glance information about different degree options and universities, to make more informed choices rather than simply relying on gut instinct and anecdotal information.

As well as providing salary data by university and subject, Emolument.com users can also investigate future career options to get a better understanding of how their choices might affect the kind of industries and roles they go into, empowering them to manage their own career more effectively.

COO of Emolument.com, Alice Leguay, said: "Students who don't get the results they need to get into their first choice universities are faced with some really big decisions that they have to make quite quickly. It is important for them to gather as much information as possible to make sure they are making informed choices, and that means also considering the long-term career opportunities that their degree might lead to, so salary transparency can be a really valuable tool."
