Careers using languages

There has always been a wide choice of jobs for graduates with languages skills.

This is increasingly true in today's globalised workplace. 

By choosing languages, you are not limiting your career options. Graduates with language skills have a whole range of career opportunities open to them.

From teaching and academia through to government, business and the media, it is very difficult to find a career path where language skills do not enhance your profile and put you ahead of the crowd.

Our BSc programmes

Our BSc International Relations with Chinese will prepare you for a career in politics and government, diplomacy of international organisations, NGO charities and international development (including multi-national corporations).

Our BSc Language Culture and Society will prepare you for a career in government, corporate organisations, research and advisory organisations and social care, as well as further study.

Teaching languages

If you are interested in a career in teaching languages the Department for Education has some useful guidance on training to teach languages.

Support for your career

Many leading organisations give careers presentations at the School during the year, and LSE Careers has a wide range of resources available to assist students in their job search. See further information on graduate destinations.
