Top 12 degree subjects for getting a job

I can’t believe it’s five years since I wrote about this (this was the top 10 in 2012 if you are interested).  This month The Telegraph have listed the top 12 degree subjects leading to employment (or further study). They are (in reverse order to add to the tension!):

Historical and Philosophical studies
Engineering and Technology
Creative Arts and Design
Business and Administrative Studies
Biological sciences
Agriculture, Building and Planning
Subjects allied to medicine
Veterinary science
Medicine and Dentistry

A massive 96.6% of all students graduating in medicine or dentistry landed themselves a job or further study within six months of graduating.
