This study examines the role played by graduates’ subject background (i.e. creative vs. non-creative subjects) in influencing their migration choice in the UK. Graduates are classified into five migration categories based on their migration choices from domicile to university and then onto workplace. The results show that graduates from disciplines such as business/management and more importantly engineering/technology are more migratory and more likely to be repeat migrants and land higher paid jobs, while graduates from creative arts, education or law are less mobile and, on average, earn less
