Career opportunities

Typical first destinations at the end of the programme include lectureships, research posts, senior administrative positions in local government, NHS and educational institutions, homeworking and trade union and union linked positions. There is increasing need for well trained social scientists who are able to apply advanced methods of analysis to complex data. These skills are in short supply and graduates of the Social Research Methods and Statistics programme, in particular, leave in a good position to obtain jobs in the academic sector, in central government, including the Office for National Statistics, in local government and within the commercial research sector.
