University graduates earn 30% more than Latvian average

The annual income of tertiary education graduates is 30% higher than the national average, according to the latest graduate monitoring data of the Ministry of Education and Science.

Monitoring the employment of university graduates is one of the evidence demonstrating the importance of studying.

Most graduates complete programs in social sciences and law. The Ministry invariably forecasts the overproduction of these specialists in the future and thinks about how to make exact sciences more popular among pupils.

The largest revenue is generated by graduates working in the agricultural sector, whose high income is explained by the receipt of area payments. The next best performers are graduates from science, mathematics, social sciences, commerce and engineering.

Humanities and arts graduates have both a lower average pay and a lower percentage of employment.
