Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This is one of the less common modern languages for students to take, but graduates from Italian courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their degrees. Last year’s graduates in Italian had a particularly low unemployment rate (we can’t guarantee this will be the case when you graduate, but it is encouraging). About one in six graduates in 2012 got jobs overseas – often as English teachers – which is much higher than for most subjects. Nearly half of the rest went to work in London. Those who want to stay at home to work usually find jobs anywhere where good communication skills are a must – and in 2012, that included education, marketing, PR and finance. 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.
