Career Opportunities

-Although there are many occupations where languages are useful, the ones where languages are essential are teaching, translating and interpreting.

-Other occupations where a languages degree would be desired are finance, law, sales and marketing, engineering, tourism and leisure, international institutions (including the UN and the EU), teaching English as a foreign language and journalism.

Most of these job roles will value language skills and possessing them will potentially open up further opportunities in your career.

Studying languages gives excellent transferrable skills, including communication, problem solving or creativity, which are recognised by UCAS and beyond.
