Future opportunities

MFL are not just for those who wish to continue solely with languages as a chosen career. At a time when more and more university courses are combining several subjects, languages are excellent partners alongside, for example, Law, Music, Engineering, History, to name but a few. MFL are highly regarded and respected by employers and higher education institutions because of the wide range of skills needed to gain an A Level in MFL. Learning a language is a life skill which can be transferred to all sorts of situations in the workplace
