Arts Students Likely To Earn Less Than Their Peers After Graduation

Arts graduates earn less than their fellow graduates of other sectors, according to a report conducted by the Central Statistics Office.

The survey, as reported by the Irish Times, followed graduates’ earnings every week for five years, starting in 2010.

The results, which are expected to be published soon, showed that for the first three years of the survey, Arts graduates were earning the least.

However, their earnings rose 70% after the five years, earning more than graduates of social sciences, journalism, agriculture and veterinary.

The full results are expected to be published at the end of the month.

This news comes after many students and universities expressed concern over the current employment situation for incoming graduates.

The highest earners were graduates of computer, education and health and welfare.
