Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
It's often said the UK doesn't produce enough modern language graduates, and graduates from German courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. The unemployment rates last year was lower than graduates in general. About one in six graduates got jobs in the EU – mostly as English teachers – which is much higher than for most subjects. The German economy is faring rather better than ours at the moment, so there may be other opportunities for ambitious graduates over there. But more graduates went to work in London, and those who want to stay at home to work find jobs anywhere where good communication skills are a must, particularly in education, translation, finance and advertising. But remember – whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Theology is actually a very vocational subject – by far the most common move for theology graduates is to go into the clergy. If you want to study theology but don't want to follow a religious career, then there are plenty of options available. 2012 graduates went into all sorts of jobs requiring a degree, from education and community work, to marketing, HR and financial analysis – even sports coaching. Postgraduate study is also popular – a lot of theology graduates train as teachers, or go into Masters or even doctoral study, so bear that in mind as you make your choice.
