UK language graduates and global mobility

Multinationals looking for graduate hires look at the ability to speak a foreign language as important but not essential, according to a survey of global firms.

Research carried out by the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR), the Council for Industry and Higher Education (CIHE) and research agency CFE shows that UK students are less likely to be internationally mobile after graduating than their foreign counterparts, with over 11 foreign students in the UK for every UK student studying abroad, the report finds.

David Docherty, chief executive of the Council for Industry and Higher Education, says: “A global graduate isn’t simply a highly educated young adult who can speak a foreign language. Employers want talented graduates who can work with people from different backgrounds and embrace different perspectives.”
