Modern Languages Careers and Networking Event

Modern Languages Careers and Networking Event

This is a past event

Ever wondered what you can do with a degree in modern languages? Come along to meet with alumni and friends of the University who now work in Aberdeen, Scotland, and Europe - who will share their experiences and top tips of making the most of your modern languages degree.

STOP PRESS!!  A massive thank you to one of our guests for this event, Fiona Woodford from Global Connects, who has agreed to offer a day’s shadowing at their offices in Glasgow for one lucky student, to be taken at mutual convenience in the coming months.  Travel funds and meal allowance will be provided.  To apply to participate, make sure to come along to the event and add your name to list on Monday evening. The winner will be chosen at random.
