We can almost guarantee that most people, if asked what the most lucrative university course in the country was, would hazard a guess at Law from the University of Cambridge, Mathematics from Imperial College London, or something along those lines.
Whilst such courses from top ranking universities certainly can increase your employability and earning potential, it isn’t guaranteed. Sometimes, the course you need can be a little closer to home – at Havering College, for example.
The Telegraph recently published a list of the top 10 courses nationwide that produce graduates with the highest earnings a year after graduating. There are some big names on the list, including those mentioned above, but topping it is the Engineering & Technology courses here at Havering College.
According to the Department for Education, our engineering and technology students have a higher average salary than graduates from any other course in the country a year after graduating – not bad for a “little known institution from East London!"
Of course, this doesn’t guarantee a high salary for all of our students, but we are extremely proud to top this list. We constantly strive to meet the needs of individuals and employers by providing high-quality education and this statistic is testament to that.
