BA Arabic Studies / Careers

Year of entry: 2022

Career opportunities

A degree in Modern Languages and Cultures paves the way for a broad range of careers.

You will develop intercultural awareness and enhanced communication skills - both highly valued by employers.

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

You will develop independence and self-confidence during your residence abroad, and your intercultural communication skills will make you a strong contender for media, journalism and PR roles.

Many of our graduates go straight into business services, marketing, advertising, management, banking or communications.

Others pursue postgraduate study or further vocational training to become accountants, lawyers, teachers (both in the UK and overseas) or to enter the Civil Service.

The University of Manchester is the most targeted university in the UK for top graduate employers (High Fliers Research, 2019).

Employers who have taken on our Arabic Studies graduates in the past include Santander, RBS, the British Army, Virgin Atlantic, UK Islamic Mission, Amnesty International and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
