Modern Languages graduates in demand

Published: 25 September 2013

Almost 98 per cent of graduates with degrees in modern languages from Southampton are in work or further study after six months after leaving university, an increase from 87 per cent in 2011, according to the latest Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

Head of Modern Languages Professor Mike Kelly says: "This is very good news for our students and a reflection of the work that Employability Officer Dr Ian McCall and colleagues in both the discipline and Career Destinations have put into running interesting activities for our students"

Major recruiters such as Amazon and the European Union civil service have visited the campus to talk to students, there have been two alumni panels and careers and employability have been embedded in day one of the induction talks. Dr Darren Paffey has now taken over as Employability Officer for 2013-14.
