Wealthy students keep earnings gap


Wealthy students keep earnings gap
Graduates from wealthy families “earn significantly more” in their careers than less well-off counterparts, even if they study the same course at the same university, according to research.
The study, based on 260,000 graduates in England, has examined the links between university and later income.
It shows big earning gaps between different courses and universities.
Jack Britton, of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, says it shows the persistence of “social immobility”.
