Exclusive Premium Statistic

United Kingdom (UK): Average salary by education level 2003-2013 This statistic shows the average annual gross wage/salary in the United Kingdom (UK), by highest level of qualification and age. The average annual gross wage is the median of the average annual gross wages for each quarter. From the ages of 21 to 24, those with an apprenticeship were the top earners, at 17,383 to 21,570 British pounds per year. However, from age 25 onwards, graduates became the top earners. Each education level, despite some fluctuations, follows the same rough trend arc of growth and decline in earnings depending on age. A survey conducted in 2014 on the confidence of British adults about receiving a pay rise in the next year, shows that 46 percent of respondents were not at all convinced that their wage would be increased. Only 13 percent reported they were fairly confident about receiving higher wages in the next 12 months. Data regarding gender distribution of confidence levels in receiving a pay rise illustrates that men were among the more confident, with 15 percent reporting they believed they would receive a pay rise. In contrast, only 10 percent of female respondents believed they would earn higher wages the following year.
