BA Italian Studies - Honor de Winton

"Languages provide a vast amount of transferable skills. I have learnt how to communicate in a different language, and in a different culture. I have acquired analytical and research-based skills that will be extremely useful in later life.

"I have already been able to secure a number of marketing work placements and internships following graduation."

Honor de Winton / Year 4 student

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

You'll develop intercultural awareness and enhanced communication skills - both 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.

You'll 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, 2020).

Our Italian graduates have gone on to work at companies such as Zalando, Greenpeace, NHS, Barclays, Roblenko, Alfred H Knight, Fresh Direct, P&A Receivables, Connexity Europe, Sane Communications, Benchmark International, Wellocks, Cognolink, and Penguin Random House.
