Our objective is to make you ﬂuent in written and spoken Mandarin Chinese and to give you a sound knowledge of Chinese life and culture, while also fostering the critical and analytical skills and the conﬁdence and maturity which will make you attractive to employers. Modern languages are vital in a world of international cooperation, interdependence and trade. Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world and, since it is not taught in many UK schools, you will find yourself in demand when you graduate.
Following graduation, our students are well equipped for a range of careers including translation and interpreting, journalism and teaching. Many have also gone onto successful roles within business, broadcasting, law, politics, charities, public relations, and education, as well as the Civil Service. As a Hull Alumni you continue to have access to the University Careers Service, which provides a wealth of advice, information and guidance to help ready you for the world of work. You can also choose the pathway to further study and training; our graduates have gone on to study Masters courses, while others have taken a teaching route and progressed to a Postgraduate Certificate in Education.
