1 What Do Masters Graduates Do? 2007 Overview The Higher Education Careers Service Unit (HECSU) produces an annual web-based resource, looking at postgraduate destinations, What Do Postgraduates Do? The study is based on raw data from the Destination of Leavers of Higher Education (DLHE) survey, from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), and looks at the destinations of postgraduates six months after they left university. This document looks at the destinations of Masters graduates from 2005, and examines the outcomes of this group of university leavers in comparison to those of NB: The destinations of doctoral graduates from 2005 will be the subject of an update from HECSU and the UK Grad Programme later in In 2005, masters degrees were awarded to UK-domiciled graduates by UK universities. Of them, 70.5%, or 29430, gave information to the survey. After a minimal rise in the number of graduates from masters degrees in 2004, the figures from 2005 showed a modest increase of 3.9%, keeping pace with the increase in first degree graduates during the same period. There is little evidence of an ongoing explosion in the number of masters qualifiers, as is popularly assumed. Women made up 53.3% of the respondent population, and 52.7% of Masters qualifications were the result of full-time study. Masters degrees continue to be studied part-time as a component of professional development, particularly in highly vocational areas. Just over half, 50.9%, of Masters graduates were over 30 years old when they graduated. Subjects studied from Business Studies to Clinical Medicine 4,390 graduates reached Masters level in business studies in 2005, giving it 10.5% of the qualifying population. This represents a substantial fall over 2004 figures, but still leaves the subject as comfortably the most popular Masters degree. 2,240 management Masters were awarded, or 5.4% of the total, and 5.0% were achieved in subjects relating to the academic study of education - equating to 2,070 Masters graduates. All three top subjects had large proportions of mature and part-time qualifiers. Table one shows the most popular subjects.

3 Types of work Of the Masters graduates from 2005 who replied to the survey, 23,410 entered work in the UK. Just under a quarter of working graduates, 5,090 or 22.0% of the population, had entered a management role six months after graduating. Although this is an obvious product of the importance of business and management subjects, many other subjects also saw significant numbers of graduates entering these jobs. Masters in Education accounted for one in eight graduates, 2900, many of whom had studied part time. The popular field of other professionals, was largely made up of general researchers in academia, town planners and architects. Table Two below shows the types of work that the whole masters group went into. It is significant to note that, relative to undergraduate study, few masters graduates went into work that would be considered 'non-graduate'. In 2005, 13.2% of Masters graduates started work in jobs that did not require a degree, mainly in entry-level office work. However, for some subjects, especially in the arts and humanities, this figure was much higher.

4 Arts and Humanities Overall 2005 saw 8,555 people graduate with masters degrees in the arts and humanities, with 6,080 replying to the first destination survey, a response rate of 71.1% Women made up 60.7% of the respondent population, and 66.6% of Masters qualification in the field were the result of full-time study. 41.9%, of Masters graduates in these subjects were over 30 years old when they graduated. Subjects studied 1,395 masters graduates got degrees in history, representing one in six, 16.3%, of all masters graduates in arts and humanities. One in nine, 11.1%, got degrees in English, and 8.1% in design. Other popular subjects included: Information services Fine art Media studies Music Theology Drama Philosophy Archaeology Cinematics & photography Imaginative writing Journalism First destinations 62.3% of masters graduates in the arts and humanities were in work in the UK 6 months after graduating. Another 9.0% of masters graduates were combining work and study. (See Figure Two.) Of the remainder, 11.0% of masters graduates had gone on to study further in the UK a relatively high number, and demonstrating a willingness amongst this group to enter further study - and 3.5% had gone overseas to start their careers in work or study. 5.4% were unavailable for work or study - mainly travelling - and 4.6% were unemployed at the time of the survey down from the 2004 figure of 5.3%, but still above the average of all masters degree graduates, which stood at 4.2%

5 Working and studying 9.0% Entered study or training in the UK 11.0% Working or studying overseas 3.5% Not available for work or study 5.4% Entered work in the UK 62.3% Believed unemployed 4.6% Other 4.2% Figure Two: Survey responses of UK-domiciled masters degree graduates from 2005 Types of work Of the arts and humanities graduates from 2005 who replied to the survey, 4,320 entered work in the UK 71.1% of the overall respondent population. 21.1% of those working had entered a profession in the arts, design, media or sports, with journalism, arts officers, translators, fine artists and authors all well represented. Another 15.2% graduates had entered education. Amongst this group, parttime professional development amongst university, further education and secondary school teachers and lecturers made up a significant number of respondents. Just over one in ten graduates, 10.8%, in these subjects, went into management in a wide range of different types of job. Arts and humanities masters graduates went into a very wide range of roles in the economy on graduation. However, they were much more likely than other Masters graduates to begin their careers after completing their qualification in a job that did not require a degree with 24.3% of graduates in non-graduate roles. These jobs were very likely to be in entry-level office roles which allow a graduate to gain experience of work and progress, and it is likely that a follow-up survey would find many of these graduates working at a higher level relatively soon after this survey.

7 Biological sciences Overall 1,630 Masters degrees were awarded in biological science subjects in This number is down significantly on last year because, (i) psychology has been moved into the biomedical sciences subject category in respect of outcomes at postgraduate level and (ii) Masters graduates in psychology often go into positions in educational psychology and other psychology specialisms. Women made up the majority of the respondent population, with 53.8%, and three quarters, 74.4% of Masters qualifications (in the field) were studied on a full time basis. Just over a quarter of graduates, 26.5%, were over 30 when they qualified well under the average for Masters study, and reflecting these qualifications as ones often progressed to by younger learners. Subjects studied Had psychology been included in this section, it would have accounted for nearly half of all Masters degrees awarded in biological sciences. With the subject being moved, the most popular area of study was in biology, with 370 graduates, 22.6% of the total. Many of these biologists specialised at Masters level, with marine biology and environmental biology the most popular subcategories. 270 degrees were awarded in agriculture, one in six of all biological science Masters, and 245 sports science Masters degrees were obtained. Other popular subjects included Microbiology Molecular biology, biophysics & biochemistry Genetics Food & beverage studies Zoology First destinations Of the 1,245 Masters graduates in biological sciences who replied to the survey, 780 were working six months after graduation, and another 125 were combining work and study. This means that nearly three quarters of graduates, 75.5%, were working in the UK six months after graduation, with another 2.9% working overseas. Another 13.7% were studying, mainly for PhDs this option was particularly common for biologists and microbiologists. 5.6% were unemployed six months after graduation, but no one subject showed a large number of unemployed graduates.

These graduates went into a very wide range of occupations throughout the economy. Science, management and professional and technical occupations largely as technicians and conservation officers being the most popular. Those Masters graduates entering scientific roles typically did so in areas closely related to their subject of study. The majority of this group of graduate had studied part time, but were under 30 years old, suggesting that the qualification was part of an early career strategy.

10 Biomedical sciences Overall This section examines the first destinations for Masters degree graduates in biomedical subjects from Psychology graduates were included in this group, making its composition different to last year s data this is both because psychology outcomes at Masters level often have specialist medical outcomes which fit better with this area than for biological sciences, and to produce consistency with What Do PhDs Do?, from UKGrad where psychology is also included within biomedical sciences. 4,990 Masters degrees were awarded in biomedical disciplines in 2005, with 3,590 replying to the HESA Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DHLE) survey a 71.9% response rate. The majority of graduates 61.2% - studied part time, and 63.6% were over 30 on graduation. Women make up 77% of the cohort in these disciplines and in psychology and nursing two very important subjects at Masters level - over 80% of the graduating cohort were women. Subjects studied 30.9% of graduates in this area studied psychology 1,545 graduates, with nearly half specialising at Masters level, in areas such as educational psychology, social psychology and occupational psychology. 16.9% graduates completed Masters qualifications in clinical medicine, whilst nursing, with 560 graduates, accounted for 11.2% Other popular subjects included Physiotherapy Clinical dentistry Therapy disciplines Occupational health Pharmacy First destinations Of the 3,590 Masters graduates in biomedical sciences who replied to the survey, 72.8% were working six months after graduation, and another 12.6% were combining work and study. Another 6.1% had entered study or training in the UK almost half of whom were psychologists going on to PhDs. Unemployment rates were low 2.3% - with no subjects showing a propensity to unemployment.

Other popular job roles included working as registrars or consultants, physiotherapy and educational psychology. Very few graduates from these disciplines were in nongraduate roles six months after graduating. Nurses 8.1% 245 Specialist registrars, consultants and general practitioners 6.5% 200 Education psychologists 5.0% 155 Physiotherapists 5.0% 155 Biochemists, medical scientists 4.6% 140 Hospital and health service managers 4.3% 135 Psychologists 3.9% 120 University and higher education lecturers 3.1% 95 Researchers (university - unspecified discipline) 2.0% 60 Speech and language therapists 1.9% 55 Table Eight: Commonest jobs undertaken by UK-domiciled masters degree students in biomedical subjects, graduating in 2005 and working in the UK six months after graduating

13 Business and management Overall This section looks at destinations for UK-domiciled Masters graduates in business studies and management. 6,630 UK-domiciled graduates obtained Masters degrees in business or management in 2005, with 4,455 responding to the survey, a response rate of 67.2% The majority of respondents, 61.8%, were men, and two thirds had studied part time 66.8%. Over 70% were over 30 when they graduated, with 30% over 40. First destinations 4,455 social science graduates replied to the survey, and the first destinations reinforce the impression from the demographics of study that these are common subjects for continuing professional development. Over three quarters, 77.4%, were working in the UK six months after graduating, with a further 7.7% working and study. A very small proportion, only 2%, went onto further study. Unemployment stood at 4.1%, but was starkly different dependent on mode of study. For full time graduates, the rate was 9.1%, for part-timers, it stood at 1.6%. Working and studying 7.7% Entered study or training in the UK 2.0% Working or studying overseas 3.0% Entered work in the UK 77.4% Not available for work or study 2.3% Believed unemployed 4.1% Other 3.6% Figure Five: Survey responses of UK-domiciled masters degree graduates in social science subjects from 2005

14 Types of work 3,780 graduates in business and management subjects entered the workplace in the UK in The majority went into management positions, with business professions being the other main destination for graduates.

16 Engineering and technology Overall This section looks at destinations for UK-domiciled Masters graduates in engineering and building in This section has been separated out from physical sciences due to differences in destinations and is presented for the first time in this format. 3,595 Masters degrees were awarded in engineering and building disciplines in 2005, with 2,495 replying to the HESA Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DHLE) survey a 69.4% response rate. Unusually for higher education qualifications, the large majority of graduates in this area, 72.9%, were male. Most studied full time (53.6%), and nearly half, 48%, were over 40 when they graduated. Subjects studied 550 graduates studied planning, making it the most popular subject in this category in Engineering subjects, such as electrical engineering and civil engineering, as well as more general engineering study were the next most popular. Other popular subjects included Building Architecture Mechanical engineering Production & manufacturing engineering First destinations 2,495 engineering graduates replied to the survey, and the large majority were working, or combining work and study, on graduation. 4.3% were unemployed six months after completing their course. Electrical and electronic engineers, who suffer high unemployment at first degree level, also saw similar issues at Masters degree level, with an unemployment rate over 9%. Production and manufacturing engineering also saw elevated unemployment, whilst civil engineering, architecture and planning all enjoyed very low unemployment at Masters level.

19 Physical sciences, mathematics and computing Overall This section looks at destinations for UK-domiciled Masters graduates in physical sciences, mathematics and IT. This section has been separated out from engineering and building subjects due to differences in destinations and is presented for the first time in this format. For the sake of brevity, the subject is referred to as physical sciences. 4,740 Masters degrees were awarded in physical science disciplines in 2005, with 3,395 replying to the HESA Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DHLE) survey a 71.6% response rate. Just under two thirds of respondents were male 65.2%, and the large majority of graduates studied for their degrees full time (72.4%). Most graduates, 67%, were under 30 years of age on graduation. Subjects studied 1395 graduates took degrees in computer science, which was largely taken without specialisation. There were 765 environmental science graduates in 2005, and 705 in information systems. Other popular subjects included Mathematics Forensic & archaeological science Geology Chemistry Physics First destinations 3,395 physical science graduates replied to the survey, with most working or combining work and study. 10.9% had progressed to a further degree this is a higher proportion than the proportion for Masters study as a whole, but representing the importance of doctorates for many careers in physical science. 6.9%, the highest proportion at Masters level, were unemployed six months after graduating. Graduates in subjects associated with information technology, who have high unemployment rates at undergraduate level also experienced high unemployment rates at Masters level.

20 Working and studying 6.8% Entered study or training in the UK 10.9% Working or studying overseas 2.4% Not available for work or study 3.2% Believed unemployed 6.9% Entered work in the UK 66.8% Other 3.1% Figure Seven: Survey responses of UK-domiciled masters degree graduates in physical science subjects from 2005 Types of work 2,495 physical science graduates, 73.5% of the total respondents, were known to be working in the UK six months after graduation. With computing graduates making up a significant proportion of this cohort, it is unsurprising that a quarter of employed graduates from these subjects went into computing as a job. One in eight, 12.8%, went into management, and 11.0% were working in the business world these being primarily maths graduates. The section of other professionals is dominated by graduates in disciplines related to environmental sciences taking up posts in conservation and environmental planning. Masters graduates in physical sciences were relatively unlikely, compared to their first degree counterparts, to start their careers in jobs that did not require a degree. However, as shown in Table Fourteen, below, non-graduate level office work was still a significant destination for masters graduates in this area. These positions, however, are often taken by graduates who lack formal work experience. These graduates quickly progress, in the main, to jobs that more effectively utilise their skills once they have been able to demonstrate their ability.

22 Social sciences Overall This section looks at destinations for UK-domiciled Masters graduates social sciences. 8,860 Masters degrees were awarded in social science disciplines in 2005, with 6,090 replying to the HESA Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DHLE) survey a 68.7% response rate. The majority of respondents, 57.6%, were female, and most graduates had studied full time 59.8%. Nearly half, 44%, were over 30 years old when they graduated. Subjects studied 1580 graduates completed Masters qualifications in law in 2005, making it the most popular subject of study in the social sciences graduates took degrees in politics, with a number of specialisms, such as international relations, and peace studies having significant numbers of graduates. There were also 905 qualifiers with Masters degrees in human resources. Other popular subjects included Social work Sociology Economics Marketing Finance Social policy All of which had over 500 graduates. First destinations 6,090 social science graduates replied to the survey, with outcomes being quite typical of Masters study in general. 66.8% went to work in the UK six months after graduating, and another 9.9% were combining work and study. The unemployment rate stood at 4.2%, but was significantly higher for Masters graduates in finance, and lower in social work, social policy and human resources.

23 Working and studying 9.9% Entered study or training in the UK 8.4% Working or studying overseas 4.1% Not available for work or study 3.8% Entered work in the UK 66.8% Believed unemployed 4.2% Other 2.8% Figure Eight: Survey responses of UK-domiciled masters degree graduates in social science subjects from 2005 Types of work 4,655 social science graduates, 76.4% of the total respondents, were known to be working in the UK six months after graduation. Management dominated the outcomes for these graduates, with over a quarter working in a management position six months after gaining their qualification. Another one in six, 16.7%, were in finance or business roles, and work in social or welfare positions was also strongly favoured. The section of other professionals is dominated by graduates in research posts.

24 Type of work % of Number of population graduates Marketing, Sales and Advertising Professionals 3.9% 185 Commercial, Industrial and Public Sector Managers 25.4% 1180 Scientific Research, Analysis & Development Professionals 0.4% 15 Engineering Professional 0.6% 25 Health Professionals and Associate Professionals 4.0% 185 Education Professionals 5.2% 240 Business and Financial Professionals and Associate Professionals 16.7% 775 Information Technology Professionals 1.2% 55 Arts, Design, Culture and Sports Professionals 2.0% 95 Legal Professionals 4.8% 225 Social & Welfare Professionals 12.0% 560 Other Professionals, Associate Professional and Technical Occupations 9.7% 450 Numerical Clerks and Cashiers 1.6% 75 Other Clerical and Secretarial Occupations 7.8% 365 Retail, Catering, Waiting and Bar Staff 1.5% 70 Other Occupations 3.3% 150 Unknown Occupations 0.2% Table Fifteen: Types of work undertaken by UK-domiciled masters degree students in social science subjects, graduating in 2005 Social work is a popular subject for Masters study, and graduates from the discipline have an unemployment rate just above 1%, so it is no surprise to see social work as the commonest job for Masters graduates in social sciences on (leaving) completing their course. A number of jobs related to another popular area of study, human resources, also make the top ten. Although the large majority of graduates in social sciences find work in jobs at graduate level, the third most common job, that of general office clerk, is the most common for those who enter non-graduate employment. Social workers 5.8% 270 Personnel managers 4.4% 205 General office assistants/clerks 3.2% 150 Personnel officers 3.1% 145 Social science researchers 2.8% 130 University and higher education lecturers 2.5% 115 Solicitors 2.2% 100 Personnel and recruitment consultants/advisers 1.9% 85 Economists 1.8% 80 Hospital and health service managers 1.6% 75 Table Sixteen: Commonest jobs undertaken by UK-domiciled masters degree students in social science subjects, graduating in 2005 and working in the UK six months after graduation
