Sorry, London students – if you plan on staying here once you’ve graduated, we’ve got some very bad news for you.
That’s because London has just been named the worst place in the country to be a university graduate.
Yes, really. Despite having all the culture, all the art, all the music that you could throw a mortarboard at.
As it turns out, it’s because it’s fairly expensive. But we knew that anyway.
The “quality of life” rankings are based on average rent, starting graduate salary, monthly utilities, cost of a pint and monthly disposable income, as well as a load of other factors that we’d rather not think about.
Also taking a hefty monthly chunk out of the humble graduate pocket are Brighton, Oxford and Edinburgh.
Apparently Sheffield is the best place to be a graduate, based on its low rent prices and cheap beer.
You’d pay £667 per month for a two-bed property and £2.70 for a pint in the South Yorkshire city, in case you were wondering.
