Data set from LEO Graduate outcomes provider level data

Adjusted earnings by region of HE provider

Latest data
Last updated


We made adjustments to raw median graduate earnings to compensate for two features of the data: (1) earnings differ between regions where graduates are currently living, and (2) the region of the HE provider is associated with where graduates live and earn money five years after graduation. This datafile summarises graduates' adjusted earnings by the region of the HE provider.


Earnings of all UK domiciled first degree graduates from HE providers in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales). Earnings information is provided for all graduates living in the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) during the 2021-22 tax year five years after graduation in 2016.
