5 Degrees That Make Moving to UK Easier for Pakistani Students

In response to the substantial job shortage experienced across multiple sectors in the UK, which presents a dual challenge for both the economy and the workforce, Erudera has created a list of academic degrees that could help tackle this issue.

Erudera revealed a list of top academic degrees that are well-positioned to meet the market demand and address the shortage in the UK, mainly based on factors like the skill requirements in the job (which are aligned with the degree) as well as the degrees typically held by professionals currently employed in the respective professions.

Information such as relevant Academic Degrees, Number of Job Openings, and Hourly Wages associated with some of the Shortage Occupations in the UK can be found in the research.

Top academic degrees associated with job shortages include the following:

  • Healthcare-Related Degrees
    According to National Careers Service, jobs in this sector will have an estimated 6.2% job growth by 2027, leading to 4,300 new jobs.
