By studying a language you will keep many academic and vocational pathways open. Languages can be studied alone, or combined with other subjects at University and are highly-valued by employers.
Language graduates have a vast array of career opportunities open to them, ranging from work with well-known multinational companies to international organisations or charities. There are exciting opportunities - often involving travel abroad - in almost every sector. 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. Don't think you're limiting your career options by choosing languages.
