The latest official statistics on Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) on graduate employment and earnings have been released, showing that Roehampton's graduates are earning above the national average.

The data, which now shows the latest results for people who graduated in 2017, show that Roehampton graduates earn £130 more per year than the average UK graduate and £1,150 more than the average graduate from a modern London university.

At Roehampton, graduates from Dance Studies, Drama Studies, Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies, Film, Photography, and Sports and Exercise Sciences perform particularly well, featuring within the top 15 universities in England and top 5 in London. Roehampton is also in the top 25 universities in England for salaries three years after graduation in Education and English.

Additionally, our results overall show a steady improvement over the last three years of results, with an average increase of 11% across all subjects. Our philosophy and theology degrees saw the biggest improvement, climbing 31% since 2014.

The LEO statistics bring together education data from the Department for Education and employment, benefits and earnings data from the Department for Work and Pensions and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs. The data covers all academic years from 2003 to 2004 onwards. You can view the full data on gov.uk.

Coming after our recent Silver TEF award, the LEO data confirms our continuing success in helping all our students on to fulfilling careers.
