Unistats on the career prospects of journalism students

Josh Halliday spent his Sunday pouring over the Unistats statistics of the UK's Universities and Colleges to look at how media students fared in the job market in 2009.

My eyes fell straight at the figures for Uclan which showed that 39% of journalism undergraduates ended up in a media related profession whilst 85% of post graduates did likewise.

Tops was Sheffield where the figures were 70%

Of course it is fairly impossible to analyse these results further and you probably have to question that categories that the universities provide.

Nevertheless some interesting statistics and congratulations to Josh for ploughing through the figures.
