On Friday 6th November, 11 Modern Foreign Language students attended the Spotlight on Languages event at the University of Bath.

The aim of the day was to visit an exemplar university, where Languages are taught in joint honour degrees with Politics, International Relations and Business. Students received sound advice on career paths and attended workshops which discussed areas such as the future of the European Union and globalisation.
In addition, they had the chance to start to learn a language from scratch; something which is an opportunity in many Language degrees. The students were also taken around the campus to witness the excellent facilities of University of Bath.
The day ended with talks from different ex Modern Foreign Language university students who have very varied and interesting career paths, including management of cruises, working to defend the rights of women and working for Facebook. They day was a real eye-opener as students learnt that learning a language can take you a long way in life.
