If you have a degree it’s likely you will earn £500,000 more during your life compared with those who did not go to university.
A study conducted by Adzuna found that those without a degree can expect to earn £15,000 less a year when they start their career as compared to those who graduated.
As seen over an entire career,the difference in earnings will add up to about one half a million pounds, the study finds.
The best salaries today can be had with degrees in engineering, computer science and maths. At the lower end of the income scale for those with degrees are studies in hospitality and tourism.
Back in June, there were 54,206 jobs available in the UK to degree holders. On average there are 4.38 applicants per vacancy.
