Very few students study this subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - so bear that in mind when you look at any stats. It's a good idea to speak to tutors on university open days to find out what previous graduates went on to do.

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.
