Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses

Course description

Be ready for the global market: our Money, Banking and Finance (MBF) with Language programmes combine the rigour of an economics degree with a practical focus on banking, accounting, law and finance, plus competence in a modern European language. Birminghamâ??s established MBF with Language programmes were developed in response to demand from employers in the financial services sector for informed, able graduates with a relevant degree and strong linguistic background. They are designed to provide you with the intellectual skills to work in this dynamic and fast-changing industry, whether in the UK or internationally, and should further enable you to gain exemptions from relevant professional examinations such as the ICAEW.

Modules

Year 1: principles of economics a; principles of economics b; applied economics and it skills a; applied economics and it skills b; financial and business systems; general principles of English law; introduction to finance and management accounting; basic accounting; plus options.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
More than 2,000 students graduated with a degree in finance in 2012, but recent times have been difficult for the finance industry. As things recover, however, we'd expect the statistics to improve, and as so many – over half of the employed graduates from 2012 - go into finance, it's not surprising that London is by far the most common location for graduates from the subject to go into work, although Scotland and the North West also take quite a few graduates. It's also common for finance graduates to go into jobs such as accountancy, which require you to take more training and gain professional qualifications – finance graduates who take further study are more likely to be studying accountancy than finance.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
It's often said there's a shortage of modern language graduates, and graduates from Spanish courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. In 2012, just over 1,100 UK graduates got degrees in Spanish, and about one in five got jobs overseas – often as English teachers. If you want to put your degree to work in the UK, teacher training is a common option, and businesses see Spanish-speaking countries as important markets, leading to graduate opportunities in translation, finance, human resources and project management. 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.
