LEO data

13 June 2017

Commenting on the publication of the new Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) dataset,  Acting Director of the Russell Group Dr Tim Bradshaw said:

“University is about more than future earnings but this will be a factor for many young people who are considering their options.

“We know employers value our graduates. These figures suggest that they are willing to pay a premium for them too. Russell Group graduates benefit from high average incomes after they leave university.

“From psychology to social sciences and law and from computer sciences to engineering and physical science, Russell Group universities outperform in the graduate earnings table. Russell Group universities occupy the top 11 places in the graduate earnings table for law. In maths, our members occupy the top eight places. There is a similar pattern in other subject areas too.

“This is only the first year of LEO data but it is clear this resource will be useful for applicants who want to know how their choice of university will affect their income.”
