Spanish makes an excellent combination with another language or indeed other subjects at university and many students progress through this route in higher education. Spanish is not just a subject which leads to jobs in translation, interpreting or education since employees with language skills are highly valued in the service and manufacturing sectors of industry.
A recent survey shows that only about 5% of language graduates go into teaching, and much fewer into translating or interpreting. About 27% go into business services, and around 10% go into each of the following: manufacturing, sales, banking/finance, community/social services, transport /communications.
