What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Very few graduates take this subject and so we can't say anything definitively about what graduates go on to do with these degrees - teaching, marketing and the arts and media were the most common jobs for graduates in Portuguese from 2015. That said, modern language grads usually have a range of opportunities available to them, both home and abroad. If you are interested in studying this subject, then it might be a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from the course and what previous graduates did.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
