Computer science students are most likely to be snapped up by employers after graduation, and also to earn more, the Higher Education Authority’s annual survey of graduate prospects shows. Some 77 per cent of computer science graduates with an honours bachelor (level 8) degree last year were in employment nine months after graduation. This success rate was followed by education at 76 per cent, and health and welfare at 73 per cent. In contrast, just 36 per cent of graduates in arts and humanities were in employment.
