Will this course suit you?

Sources: UCAS & KIS

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

Arabic is a vital language for understanding societies in the Middle East and the Islamic world. If youâ??ve never studied the language before, this degree will allow you to learn the language from scratch while gaining an insight into Islamic thought, Arabic culture and Middle Eastern history. A combination of core and optional modules will give you a firm grounding in the language and Arab and Islamic history while you study the topics that suit your interests. Theology focuses on the beliefs and ideas of one religious tradition. Religious Studies looks at different religions and faith communities. Both subjects think about how religions shape and are shaped by wider society. At Leeds youâ??ll be able to explore the role and development of religious belief and practice from both perspectives. Core and optional modules will allow you to explore all the major world religions, what they have meant to people over time and how they are evolving today.

Mainly covering the study of Turkish or Arabic, this isn't a very common degree choice for UK students - just 170 students graduated in this area in 2012 - so bear that in mind when drawing conclusions from any employment and salary stats. If you are interested in studying this subject, then it's a good idea go on open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from the course and what previous graduates went on to do.

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.
