Career opportunities

Politics and 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. As well as transferable expertise at the very heart of language learning, including powers of perception and interpretation, 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 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.

Employers have included: 

  • the BBC;
  • the United Nations;
  • Spencer Ogden;
  • Channel Island Securities Exchange;
  • Westminster Russia Forum; and
  • Royal Mail.
