Make yourself more employable

22 September 2017

Study a foreign language as part of your degree.

Did you know? You can study a foreign language as part of your degree with Polylang - the University's open language programme. 

There are many good reasons to study a language as part of, or alongside, your main subject, including the following:

  • You'll enhance your employability and career progression prospects (74% of British employers look for candidates who have at least conversational language skills in a foreign language, according to a Confederation of British Industry survey).
  • You'll improve your general communication skills.
  • You'll gain an insight into new cultures and ways of seeing the world.
  • More than 85% of graduates who took Polylang found professional employment.

Get involved and attend one of our registration sessions taking place next week.
