'A huge range of career options is open to you, both in the UK and internationally. Over 40% of graduate jobs do not require a specific degree.Whats more important is the ability to communicate well and the flexibility to cope with new challenges. With a degree in languages, you are well placed to take jobs in communicative fields like advertising, the media or public relations.
