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.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
In 2012, fewer than 170 students graduated from the UK with degrees in Japanese, so anyone studying the subject will get a very rare qualification – so take that into consideration when drawing conclusions from the data above. There does appear to be a higher than usual unemployment rate after six months, but this is more to do with the very small number of graduates than any lack of demand for the degree. Nearly one in five of graduates went to work abroad, and those working in the UK tended to be in London. Employers rate graduates who have more than one language, but you'll need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.
