Data showed the universities at the other end of the salary scale were Abertay University, with an average earning of £21,228 and University College Birmingham, with an average earning of £21,068, which also didn't produce any of the country's highest-earning graduates.

When it comes to courses, only 3 per cent of graduates from creative arts & design, mass communications and agriculture degrees were earning more than £39,000 after graduating.
