Biggest winners and losers from degrees

Group of diverse grads throwing caps up in the sky

“Women studying maths at Oxford and men taking economics at Bristol get the biggest increase in earnings from going to university,” according to a recent BBC news article.

It also appears that women with a degree earn on average 28% more than non-graduate women, whereas men with degrees only earn an average of 8% more than non-graduates.

The report, based on tax records of people who went to school in England and then went to university in England, Wales or Scotland, looks at how going to university might affect earnings.

  • Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I
    had to ask!

  • When someone writes an article he/she retains the idea of a
    user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    Therefore that’s why this paragraph is perfect. Thanks!

  • Hi, I think your website might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Opera,
    it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful
    blog!

  • Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great
    photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is
    excellent but with images and video clips,
    this blog could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.

    Superb blog!

  • Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to
    my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some
    experience with something like this. Please let me
    know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look
    forward to your new updates.

  • Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thank you so much, However I am going through issues with your RSS.
    I don’t know the reason why I can’t join it. Is there anybody
    getting identical RSS issues? Anyone who knows the answer will
    you kindly respond? Thanx!!

  • Tremendous things here. I’m very happy to look your article.

    Thank you so much and I am taking a look forward to contact you.
    Will you kindly drop me a mail?

  • Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if
    it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

  • I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one
    these days.
