Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Most graduates studying a Russian and East European course studied Russian, and with Russia playing an important part in world business and politics, graduates are in demand. This is an elite group – fewer than 200 UK graduates got degrees in this subject in 2012, but they usually command some of the highest salaries of all language graduates. London was by far the most likely place for Russian graduates to work in the UK and naturally, a reasonable proportion went overseas. Postgraduate study (usually in law or languages) is also quite common – this is a growing area for the UK.
