**Course Overview**

- Get ready for an international future, with communication skills, business knowledge and practical experience – all spanning English and a language of your choice.

- In today’s global economy, businesses engage consumers, clients and suppliers across continents and beyond borders. This course is designed to give you the ability to play a vital role in that process, with professional communication skills in two languages. It’s a degree that goes beyond the mechanics of language, looking at the intercultural context of corporate communications – offering a competitive edge for a wide range of communication-oriented careers.

- While the course is built around a strong core of corporate communication and language skills, you’ll also have the flexibility to set your own direction in a range of business areas. With the variety of option units on offer, you could set your sights on disciplines like Human Resources, Marketing or Public Relations, or gain an in-depth knowledge of the region in which your chose language is spoken – from Latin America to Asia Pacific.

- Above all, this is a practical course, offering valuable skills and real experience. Placements offer the chance to develop vital project management and research skills, while you’ll also have the chance to go on to subsidised field trips to destinations like Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Spain, Germany and Cyprus.

China plays an important role in world economics and politics, and business can be very interested in graduates with good Chinese language skills. In 2015, just over 180 degrees were awarded in this subject to UK graduates, so it is still an unusual and specialist degree to take - take that into consideration before drawing definitive conclusions from the data. About one in five graduates went on to further study (mostly at Masters level) and of those who were working, a quarter went to work abroad. Most of the rest were working in the UK after six months, mainly in London. But remember — whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills, even if that language is rare and valuable to business.
