Career opportunities

A degree in Latin and French paves the way for an exceptionally broad range of careers. You'll develop analytical and problem-solving skills together with intercultural awareness and communication skills - which are highly valued by employers. 

You'll acquire transferable expertise at the very heart of language learning, including enhanced powers of perception and interpretation and advanced decision-making and multitasking skills. 

The British Council cites French as one of the top languages required for the UK to remain competitive globally (CBI/Pearson Education and Skills Annual Report 2018), underlining the fact that your language skills will offer you an advantage in business and finance careers. 

Your in-depth understanding of language will open up numerous paths with an international element, and you will develop excellent communication skills that will make you a strong contender for careers in the media, PR and similar areas. 

Our graduates have gone on to positions in business services, marketing, advertising, management, banking and communications.
