Careers and employment
Languages are an increasingly important tool for companies seeking to operate globally. This, combined with our reputation, means our postgraduates’ language skills and intellectual training are widely valued in a range of industries including translation and language teaching, finance, law and customer service. In addition to your knowledge of foreign language and culture you will develop a wide range of generic skills valued by employers in the public and private sectors. Postgraduates who studied with us in 2009/10 have secured jobs including Translator, Senior Interpreting Consultant and Senior Lecturer.
Career Zone provides a wealth of expertise, advice and support and can introduce you to graduate employers through our Careers Fairs and other schemes. For more information, see our postgraduate employment and professional development webpages.
