Prospective undergraduates

German and Dutch

 

What do students of German do after graduation?

Our students have taken up careers in many walks of life, both in Britain and abroad. Some go on to further study in literature and culture, but also in history, modern politics, European studies, history of art, international and European law and other subjects. Others go straight into careers including the following: civil service and local government, employment in the EU and in NGOs or UK and international charities, publishing, marketing, teaching, NHS administration, museum work, banking and finance, journalism, law (following a postgraduate law conversion course). Every year a fair number return to the German-speaking world to take up jobs in the places where they spent their Year Abroad. Like graduates in other languages, students of German have a higher chance of finding immediate and lasting employment than students of any other arts and humanities subject.
