To accomplish their research, The Knowledge Academy first sourced the most popular subjects for women to study, using HESA’s ‘HE student enrolments by subject of study 2016/17’ report. Then, each subject was selected using the BBC’s ‘Difference in Earnings’ tool. Lastly, data for the university found to have the biggest effect on earnings, five years after graduation, in comparison with the average degree, was recorded.

The Knowledge Academy found Medicine and Dentistry is the “most popular” subject to study for women. To earn big in this field, women should consider enrolling at Keele University. Where, five years after graduation, women are expected to earn +£22,910 in comparison with the average degree.

Joseph Scott, a spokesperson from, comments:

“Conducting this research was incredibly interesting, not least because it highlights how lifechanging choosing the right university can be. My advice to those contemplating higher education is, throw yourself into research. Choose the best option for you and you alone. Get the brochures, go on campus tours, and don’t be afraid to ask the big questions. It’s a significant opportunity, one can – quite literally – not afford to overlook!”
