Excellent employability for Modern Languages graduates

Modern Languages graduates have high employment prospects with 90% entering work or further study within 6 months of graduation.

This figure was confirmed by the latest Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey of 2015 graduates. This fantastic result also occurred alongside the University of Birmingham being awarded University of the Year for Graduate Employment in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016.

Our Modern Languages graduates go into a wide range of careers, both in this country and abroad. Employers include Amazon France, Eurocity Group, British Airways, Deloitte, French Connection, The British Council, Harper Collins, NATO, BP and the Royal Bank of Scotland. Job roles are equally varied and include English Teacher, Marketing Officer, International Sales Coordinator, Account Executive and Editorial Project Leader.

"Winning our University of the Year for Graduate Employment award is testimony to the work done by the University to ensure its graduates leave ready to make an immediate and significant contribution to workplaces regionally, nationally and internationally."
