This report investigates the relationship between how vocational a subject is and the employment outcomes of graduates. Early-career employment data for four cohorts of first degree graduates is used to create a measure based on the proportion of graduates entering a narrow set of occupations. This measure is used to examine whether studying subjects that are more vocational is associated with better employment outcomes six months after graduating.
