Universities UK has responded to the report from the Institute for Fiscal Studies which looks at graduate earnings.

Nicola Dandridge, Chief Executive of Universities UK, said: “This report gives us a broadly accurate picture of what graduates earn. It shows that UK graduates continue to earn substantially more than non-graduates over a working lifetime. It reveals also that during the recession, graduates fared better than non-graduates.

“We know that skilled graduates are increasingly in demand from employers and the value of a degree is lifelong.

“Although the research revealed that median earnings of English women around 10 years after graduation are substantially higher than their non-graduate counterparts, there is still a significant gap between the earnings of male and female graduates. This is something that needs to be looked at and addressed.”
