Course description

This is for you if you want to combine language skills with cultural insight and in-depth knowledge of management theory and practice.


In first year, alongside developing your language skills, you will explore contemporary and cultural studies, history and literature of the countries of your chosen language. Additionally, you will build an understanding of Management Studies. An additional feature of the degree is the Summer School during the summer vacation at the end of the first year, consisting of a three-week course in the country of your chosen language. The Summer School is fully funded by the University. In second year, you will continue to develop your skills in your chosen language(s) and further your knowledge in a range of cultural, linguistic, literary and management modules. In year three, you will have the chance to spend a year abroad. It will give you the chance to study or work in one or two countries related to your course. Alternatively, you can apply to spend a year working as a British Council language-teaching assistant or on some other work placement of your choice, subject to approval. It is even possible to split the year between study abroad and work placement, giving you the best of both worlds. However, it is possible, in exceptional cases, to complete this degree in three years, without a year abroad. Please note that a year spent abroad still incurs a tuition fee, but this is much lower than for a normal year at Leicester; please see our website for further details. In final year, you will continue to develop your skills in your chosen language(s), alongside your management studies. You will also continue to develop written and spoken skills in your chosen language(s) through advanced language tuition and you will also choose from a range of option modules. For further details, please see the course page on the University website.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Although management degrees are a popular choice, with nearly 5,800 degrees awarded, numbers fell quite a bit last year. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year — not just those within the finance industry, but also marketing, human resources, sales, business development and accountancy. And for management grads wanting something a little left-field, our serious shortage of surveyors means well over a hundred graduates a year are taking this lucrative option. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
