Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
As only a small number of students study this course, these stats refer to both the Gaelic and Celtic languages and study – over a third of the graduates in this area have studied Welsh. Not surprisingly, most graduates go to work in the regions they studied, so these subjects tend to lead to jobs in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and salaries reflect that, being a little lower than the graduate average. Graduates from Celtic studies subjects are also quite likely to go into teacher training when they graduate.
