Updated: Nov 20, 2023


the highest-paid jobs in the UK that will earn you most money after university

Not all graduate jobs are created equal. Although university degrees aren't cheap, some graduates find it difficult to get a well-paid job after university for several months and even years. As Bloomberg wrote this year, the job market on the whole has become increasingly competitive, and many companies are holding back on offering new graduate jobs.


Getting a good job with a high salary after graduation depends on a number of factors, including the choice of a university (it should not necessarily be an elite, Russell Group university). Some industries offer graduates more opportunities to land the job of their dreams, and there are companies that keep investing in great graduate training schemes and graduate jobs to attract and develop top talent. A graduate career resource website Milkround put together a list of the highest-paid jobs in the UK that will earn you most money after university:
