Gavan Colon from London Economics explains why the net graduate premium is higher for men than women: “women not in possession of higher education degrees are more likely to achieve lower earnings than men. This is the main reason why the earnings premium is higher than for men in percentage terms, but the financial or monetary benefit is lower in absolute terms.”

The research also shows that graduates from medicine and dentistry masters courses have higher returns than those studying design and creative arts, which have the lowest returns (sometimes even below the national average).

Furthermore, the average fee for an undergraduate or masters degree is compared with the average entry-level salary in the given sector.
