Graduate Destinations

Each year, every university in the UK contacts all UK and EU graduates to find out what they are doing on a specific date, approximately six months after graduation. This is the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

The following analysis is based on the data supplied by 29 Speech and Language Sciences BSc Honours graduates from Newcastle University who responded to our survey.

2012 Newcastle University Speech and Language Sciences BSc Honours Graduates

HESA categories

97% went into employment.

Of those in employment, 100% were in graduate-level jobs.

£20,818 was the average salary of all of the graduates who supplied us with salary details.

The classification 'other' can refer to a range of individual circumstances, for example, EU students who return to their country for national service.

Career Choices

As Speech and Language Sciences is a highly specialist vocational subject, the vast majority of our graduates have been employed by the NHS to work as speech and language therapists, working with a general caseload or further specialising in paediatrics or with adults.

Below are recent examples of graduates' employment destinations. For data protection reasons, due to the small sample size, we are unable to provide detailed further study examples for this group of students.
