How Languages Can Help Shape Students' Futures

Can you help our students?

Languages students were very lucky to have Ulrike Zitzlsperger and Fiona Cox, German and French professors from Exeter University visit QEH earlier this month. 

Pupils from Years 9 to13 heard about a wide range of topics, including the key skills that are developed when studying languages and the possibilities for language learning at university.

The professors also dispelled some myths, for example, that studying of languages leads to far more than teaching and interpreting; in fact 85% of their language graduates go into other fields of work, ranging from journalism to engineering. 

Later this academic year, we would love to invite OEs in to chat to current students about their experiences with languages.

If you have/had a career in languages, or studied a modern language at university, we would love to hear from you.
