North West
Manchester Metropolitan University, Geoffrey Manton Building, 4-7pm

Our Careers with Languages Evening will provide useful information about the personal and professional benefits of language study, the sorts of careers it can lead to and the many routes to gaining language qualifications. A talk about the careers on offer to linguists and options for language study will be followed by real life examples from business people who value language skills and actively seek language graduates to work for them. This is a valuable chance for students interested in language to find out more about what languages can do for them.

The event will be held at Manchester Metropolitan University from 4-7.00pm, and a draft programme can be found below. The event is free of charge and refreshments and a light buffet meal will be provided.
