What is STEM?

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)

A STEM degree will lead to a challenging and fulfilling career. It offers global employment prospects and increases the likelihood of a good salary later in life.

  • 72 per cent of all UK businesses rely on people with STEM skills.
  • 58 per cent of all new jobs will be STEM related.

The government has identified STEM as a national priority, to increase students’ STEM skills in order to:

  • provide employers with the skills they need in their workforce;
  • help to maintain the UK’s global competitiveness;
  • make the UK a world-leader in science-based research and development.

If you are thinking about your future, getting into STEM could be the best choice you could make.
