Which UK university produces the best paid graduates?

Emolument.com, the company that carried out the research, found that after five years successful alumni from the university with the highest average graduate salary would be earning an impressive £69,000.

It’s followed by the University of Oxford, where graduates earn on average £54,000 five years after leaving, and Warwick Business School, whose alumni can look forward to £53,000 salaries.

Also on the list were the universities of Cambridge, Sheffield, Edinburgh and Birmingham.
