Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive – often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into. If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification and many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion – about one in 17 last year– of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Psychology, business and social studies are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
It's often said the UK doesn't produce enough modern language graduates, and graduates from French courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. About one in seven get jobs elsewhere in the EU – often as English teachers – which is much higher than for most subjects. Those who want to stay at home to work find jobs in education, and anywhere good communication skills are a must. That means you can find French graduates in marketing, business and finance and the arts - as events organisers, projects managers, management consultants, and, of course, translators. 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.
