Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
English is one of the most popular degree subjects and in 2012, more than 12,000 students graduated with English degrees. As good communication is so important to modern business, you can find English graduates in all parts of the economy, although obviously, you can't expect to get a job as a doctor or nuclear physicist. There isn't a lot of difference in terms of outcomes between taking English language or English literature, so choose the one that suits you and don't worry about whether one is more likely to get you the job you want than the other. About one in five English graduates went into further study last year, and apart from further degrees in English, graduates were also likely to go onto teaching, law or publishing. All in all it's a flexible option – some even changed career direction entirely and took postgraduate courses in subjects like nursing or maths.
