Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Management degrees are a popular choice, with more than 6,000 graduates in 2012. 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 community work, IT, marketing and PR and even surveying. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.

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.
