Here Are The Best Five Places In The UK To Move To When You Graduate

It’s graduation season, which means it’s time to decide what’s next.

Finishing uni can be scary, because it feels like starting all over again. You have to find somewhere new to live and find a job – neither of which are easy. So if you’re not fully sorted yet and are still deciding where you want to be living next, have a look at these five cities. And if you’re living in one of them already you can feel pretty good about yourself.

A recent study by thehouseshop.com looked at where graduates have the best quality of life in the UK. They compared different locations in the country based on the price of a pint, average starting salary, rent prices, utilities costs and disposable income.

Based on those factors, here are the top five places you should consider moving to after uni.
